So, I checced to see if anyone else was doing my idea, and at least one person...

Have several terabytes of porn on an external hard drive (no, nothing illegal) but don't really look at porn anymore.
Of course still have all the usual sources to get more.
Poor as fucc.
People are stupid and lazy.

So, I checced to see if anyone else was doing my idea, and at least one person seems to be doing something very similar and not getting into any trouble, and I have this massive stacc of DVD-R's sitting on a shelf I have no use for, so what I thought I'd do was this.

Set up auctions on eBay in the adult section for adult dvds. Specify they'll come in a discreet envelope pacced in a plain white sleeve.
Advertise each auction as a "collection" of videos from a certain porn star.
Charge maybe 5 buccs per dvd, so if for instance it takes 4 dvds to give them a complete "collection" charge 19.99.
Offer theme sets as well, like goth, bukkake, etc.
Once I've made 100 this way, reinvest 42 and buy some more dvd-rs.
Catering to people who don't know how to download stuff or are too paranoid to use torrents or just like having physical media that can be played in dvd players.
Quit the business altogether when I make around 8k so I can branch out into other more stable stuff.

Any possible reason this wouldn't work? I know there's a few people who work in the porn industry lurking this board.

FBI might buy one of your collections, then if one is underage but looked legal you go to jail. Also profiting off of other people's porn might violate both privacy laws and rights they have to their videos (the rights that both the sites and people have over their videos).

Get a real job, and research ways to save money.

But your idea actually sounds decent as a side gig.

Saving porn is probably not illegal
Selling someone's copyrighted porn is illegal
Youll probs be fine though tbh. Too small time to get noticed, likely.
Althogh I dont know if theres mcuh of a porn market on ebay

There is nothing underage in my collection, at all. I used to have a bunch of stuff from when *I* was underage and I recorded girls on webcam with me, but I lost that HD years ago. Everything I have was acquired through torrent sites, streaming sites or plain old google searches.

Pretty sure it's illegal to sell burned dvds. Not that I think you'll get arrested but someone will complain, then ebay won't pay you, then eventually take you down. The only way to avoid this would be to make professional-looking sticcers on the dvds.

implying cp doesnt show up on torrents, streaming sites or google

kek

But seriously faggot, you will face some serious fines if you are selling someone else's work.

any big names? you're fucced, someone will contact them or ebay, and ebay doesn't like people doing illegal shit on their platform.

small names? you might be ok if nobody cares enough to do anything.

unlabeled stuff? you might be ok if the cops don't take an interest or someone who peruses copyright lawsuits.

Just so you know, in most countries, and the US (assuming you're in the US) it doesn't matter how much money you make off copyrighted work, they can still fucc your ass for a minimum fine of 50k in most cases and up to $100k+ and jail time.

Not to mention how fuccing crazy the political system in the US can get over porn.

So unless you plan on making a fake paypal and ebay account and laundering your money somehow. I'd probably just try find some other way to make money than profiting off your old porn collection.

Be careful, people can both put videos on torrents with no age listed and can also lie about their age on the videos themselves. Just trying to help. Good lucc user.

Make sure you only sell old shit from small companies or you're going to get vanned

What about exclusively collections of stars that have retired, or websites that have gone out of business? Surely the Japanese stuff should get a pass.

IIRC, eBay is really anal about amateur stuff not wanting to risk being accused of selling revenge porn.

They'll buy it even if it's plain, blank CDs in plain sleeves? I mean, it'll have porn on it, but still.

And I mean, what am I supposed to do, just park there with a sign that says "porn for sale"? I feel like if I just walked up to a bunch of truckers and said "Hey, you guys like jerking off?" I'd wake up in a hospital eating through a straw.

Joshua Cooper

nah, get a CB radio, check craigslist. go to a truckstop. say something like
"adult dvds for sale, full collection, 20 dollars, channel 15, channel 15"
and if they're interested, they switch to channel 15. then you tell them what yo have and all that fun shit, and then tell them to come to your truck or by the dumpster or whatever and they buy it.
I would sharpie mark the dvd's with what they are though, we have a lot of fucking porn.
oh, channel 19 is the general bullshittery channel, so that's where you go to do your little hook.

Idk where you live, but any major city has bootleg guys walking around in the open. They have all the new movies, some have porn but you have to ask, and they go store to store. My friend used to do it in the summer when we were in High School. He would buy 100 dvd's, already burned, from some Chinese triad looking motherfuckers in Chinatown, for $100. So basically he'd make 5 times his money. He made 10k one summer. What you're talking about is much riskier, ebay has an image they want to protect. So they'll turn you in, in a heart beat. So unless you live in a city where it's socially accepted to sell bootlegs, you better not risk it. If it was easy, I guarantee the people my friend used to buy his dvd's from would be selling them on ebay as well.

This happened to a colleague years ago. He was selling DVDs on ebay as new, fucker didn't think anyone would report him.

Police raided his house, found. . . interesting porn, and the guy an hero'd. It was a good thing he did too, other people at work had bought off him and were worried he'd rat them out.

Are you saying your friend sold CP on eBay…?

Isaac King

Why does everyone on this site give the police so much credit?

I can't imagine them ever getting involved in a case like this, the worse that'll happen is you get banned from ebay or your paypal frozen.

Police barely give a fuck about copyright stuff and as long as you aren't being super obvious and advertising dvds as CP or jailbait they will never get involved.
