    I don't have enough expertise to make recommendations on the legal issues, but I'd like to point out one practical issue. If you are using Google Adsense, and somebody reports you to Google for copyright infringement, Google will dump you from Adsense. (On our forum, somebody reported a 2-year-old post that linked to an unauthorized copy of a video. That was all it took. Even after we removed that link, Google "reviewed" our site, told us we had other violations, and refused to tell us what they were.)

    Hmmm... I'm willing to bet that your forum is conservative in nature. "Fake news" perhaps?:ROFLMAO:
