  1. #1
    hi all,

    hope you can help. i heard that 'warez sites' get in bother quite a bit and individuals who use them can get in trouble.

    i just wanted to know is this site or rlslog or vcdquality.com for example classed as 'warez sites' or are they safe to be on?

    thanks for the help

    FST is safe, unless you live in some country that won't even let you "chat" about file sharing.

    There are no illegal or copyrighted files hosted on this site whatsoever.

    Short answer, no it is not a warez site.

    thanks for the info, what about other sites that share release info such as rlslog and vcdquality e.g? or are they just information sites too, sorry a little confused

    I think Vcdq also only offers information about releases with no metadata or direct links.

    With Rlslog I am a bit unsure. Sometimes the site offers Rapidshare links to samples, so they directly link to downloadable samples. A sample is part of the movie, I think you are also not allowed to distribute parts of a movie without authorization, but I'm not sure. Then also, rlslog often directly links to a Torrent on NewTorrents - not only automatically suggesting with which query to look for it, but directly deep linking to the specific torrent - I think this can also be seen as scienter action with the author directly involved in linking to a working torrent.

    But release sites are of course not such a big target like the actual warez sites..

    ah i see, yeah but then FST also links directly to torrents and nzb's so surely that would be saying that this site also acts the same as rlslog. can individuals get in trouble for visiting these 2 sites for example?

    FST hosts NZBs, yes. There is nothing illegal about that whatsoever.

    That is completely different from hosting torrents which we do not do. Linking to such content is also against the rules and is expressly stated on the Rules page.

    Doing so could bring FST into a different classification known as "third-party liability", which is something we do not want.

    Rule 10 - Cracks/Keygens/Warez
    Posting of direct download links to copyrighted material such as private ftp sites, serial numbers, warez sites and torrentlinks are prohibited. Posts directly or indirectly containing this information will be edited. Sig2dat quicklinks and hashes are NOT considered to be downloadable and will be allowed. Don't ask for torrents, cracks, serials or keygens to be posted, you are asking someone else to break this rule. Hacking/Cracking discussions are not allowed.

    what is the difference then between a torrent and a nzb? surely they both allow you to download the content?

    if "warez" is defined as "empty words".
    then yes,
    it is.
