    I've a question about this site. I don't know if it is legal to offer software as Nero Burning Rom. Normally you've to pay for such software.
    I've build a website for people who have computerproblems and maybe I want to make a downloadlink to this site. So I need to know if it is legal to offer software as Nero.


    PS. I'm sorry for my bad English

    It's not the full version of Nero that you are seeing, it is the demo.

    Yes, it's legal.

    But from just a normal member, you will not find a more ''squeaky clean'' site anywhere on the www
    Your proposed web-site would be enriched by recommending oldversion.com

    As far as I can tell, everything offered at Oldversion.com is either free or a demo/trial version.

    If you can show that they're inadvertently offering anything illegal, let the owners know. If you're right, they'll probably remove it.

    Yeah, this site is special, no Illegals. however what I understand is only if you host Illegal files you can get in trouble, as there are sites that just offer links and torrent trackers that have been around forever, Suprnova radio comes to mind.

    i would think that offering links to illegal content would also be illegal , hence the reason that ov does not have links to warez sites posted on the forum if any occur they are swiftly removed.

    nonsense, just look at Suprnova, they don't host the files, they just track them. Thus look at warez.net, hey the RIAA SPA knows about them, but their still in buisness.

    Then GOOGLE would be Illegal. :huh:

    Hosting links to illegal content is illegal, Check the DMCA.
    Referring to the actions of others is not a way to run a site. Maybe those sites are still alive because they are located outside of the USA.
    Oldversion is bound by the laws of the US.

    Google receives hundreds of C&D's daily. Google is responsible and liable for links to content which violates the DMCA.
