    Private torrent sites are legal?
    I am planing to host one

    Accepted answer by Tokeman
    Again I must point out, that unless the admin is notified, then IMO its not illegal. If that were true, then google would be illegal, as they contain links to copyrighted material. They just take it down when they get notified about it. They don't go around looking for stuff to remove on their own, so why should it be any different for torrent sites, they are also only indexing links.

    Now I understand that most if not all torrent sites do not provide a way to be contacted about such links, but if they did....?

    This is all just a curious subject for me, I'm not trying to be difficult or prove I'm right. I just like a good debate
    Because It is with nice eg.
    Thanks

    As legal as can be ...

    Seriously ... no they are not if you intend to involve in the sharing of copyrighted material.
    A private torrent site an sich ain't illegal. It's what happens within the tracker that can make it illegal.

    since there's no world law, it depends on the country.

    Tracker itself is legal. Content makes it ilegal (or not "too legal")
