    I don't run any but use them do use them occasionally. I thought they were illegal?, i.e. copyrighted materials.

    The funniest thing I saw was on one of these sites: "example.com is not responsible for any content on this website". Well of course they are responsible, they are the ones that uploaded it to the net

    I would not get involved with these sites. It was interesting with the recent case with thepiratebay.org, I think these sites are similar in the way that they are profiting from illegal content.

    And yet most of them run AdSense.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Google will crack down on them one day. Does anyone know if they are indexed in Google searches?

    Yes they are.

    For example:

    watch skins - Google Search

    They don't upload any videos, they just link to them. The videos are uploaded on sites like megavideo etc.

    Yes, I realize that, however they are still responsible for choosing to link to megavideo.

    I think all these stuffs like embedding and linking are big loopholes exploited by many such video sites..just simply say that you dont host it and you feel safer..

    yes, but as far as I know that's not illegal.
    You can get sued if you're big (like there were a few uk sites like these, don't recall them now, that got closed a year ago). But there aren't any explicit rules prohibiting linking.
