    Hello iPod Touch Fans,

    Tonight, I am announcing the resurrection of iPot Movies.

    [For those of you that have no idea what im talking about, iPot Movies was the first movie streaming website for the ipod. I was the owner and developer. Due to hosting issues, I was unable to continue the project.]

    iPot Movies will be a donation only website. Meaning, in order to view movies, you need to make a small donation to the website. I am doing this because hosting isnt free and I can pay for it all by myself.

    I suggest you use this service on wifi. At&t 3g simply wont work.

    I will be adding new movies every week and I am open to suggestions.
    Take a look at the site. Currently, its only available on the ipod touch and iphone.

    [removed]

    Thanks All,

    Justin

    The bracket on the end of your link needs to be removed from the URL tags.

    Haha, of course it's illegal! You accepting payments for movies that you do not own, not to mention hosting them. You better hope your host is trusting because if the authorities come after you, the first place their going to go is your host to get information on you. They will find you, and you will be in so much debt, you wouldn't be able to live on without collectors over your shoulder 24/7. Good luck man, your going to need it.

    This is not a public website. It isnt for anyone that I dont allow access.
    I dont really care. All I am looking for are a few people that are interested.

    Im not looking to get 700 unique page views. I just want a few people (friends) that i can allow access to my private site. Who said the movies that I host are copy right infringement? How would anyone know unless they have access.

    (trust me there are goood movies)

    All in all, the movies you have on your website are copyrighted and most likely are prohibited in the TOS of your host. Your asking for subscriptions without giving compensation back to the movies rightful owner, and that my friend, is illegal. I know your probably just a 14,15,16 year old kid trying to get a few extra bucks in hand, but dude, it is not worth it. Depending on how much money you make, I'd consider looking into contacting a CPA, or a certified public assistant, that will help you in paying taxes on money you've made, so you don't get pwned by the IRS. Man kid, you don't know what your getting yourself into.

    I am not planning on making anything but pocket change. That pocket change will mostly go towards the server. Also, I do have experience with what I am doing. Thanks for your concerns, but if you aren't interest, please kindly move on.
