Sorry, didn't know where else to put this other than under "culture".

Some of you may be familiar with websites which host entire series and movies; Rainertamayo.com in particular brazenly hosts full videos right there, no redirects or searching through links- one click and a full episode in a youtube player.

I am curious, by what virtue does this site survive? It makes no pretense to redirect or aggregate in the style of tvduck, etc. With the times as they are, how can a website simply host this material itself unmolested? Is it some way the site is configured to defend itself, like the pirate bay's dancing from server to server? Is it a current lack of initiative on the part of powers that be? On that note, what is the current state of this struggle to control media? After SOPA and PIPA were defeated to much fanfare, it seems like the war has been.. under-reported.

What type of person is compelled to maintain a professional site such as this or the pirate bay? Do they really believe in freedom of information or do you think it's a more base, anti-authoritarian compulsion? Surely one begets the other.. pic unrelated

I'm curious about this myself, but no-one's responding.
I know there are some countries that allow piracy; they argue imprisoning people for it is a stupid waste of time, and the people doing it are jerks. It's a sounds argument.

Somebody weigh in that actually knows?

Anyone can put up a website. Anyone can register a domain.

The reason these sites survive is because the various media cooperatives (MPAA, RIAA, IFPI, etc.) are not aware of their existence.

Basically the MAFIAA have paid technology companies that are down on their luck and desperate for work to write and maintain web crawlers that do the same thing Google has done for years... walk from page to page indexing pages and content and links all across the internet and back again.

If it's placed on a publicly accessible website, or a private site which they've infiltrated (because people talked about that private site on public websites), then their custom web crawler locates and identifies content and reports it back to their masters.

The only way for sites to stay under the radar is not to talk about shit in public. Otherwise it's just a matter of time.
