Free online movies

Gents,
Can anyone direct me to any websites, where I can watch films online for free?
Half of the bloody films that I've tried to watch on youtube, either "ain't available in my country" or are not on it.
Surely, there must be some sites where you can watch films?
Or is every bloody thing ever made copyright protected?
 
I think they had a big clear up on youtube recently , i was going to watch A Bridge To Far on there and its been taken down . There were loads and loads but they have all gone . Daily Motion might have some .

YouTube uses your computer IP address to determine your physical location / country. In order to bypass these country-specific restrictions on YouTube, try this trick:
If the URL of the YouTube video is – just replace the /watch?v= part with /v so your new URL becomes .
Alternatively, you may download the YouTube video through a proxy and watch it offline. The other trick is that you type the YouTube video URL inside Google Translate and use this a free Google Proxy Server

Erm... actually, yes. That's exactly the case. Producers, believe it or not, aren't a kind of cultural heritage type group. They make films for a living. That means that they need to be paid and aren't over the moon about seeing their stuff on Youtube.

But to be fair, I haven't boycotted Youtube on principle, so these are the times we live in.

I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for, but do try to remember to use the word 'stolen' or 'illegally distributed' rather than 'free'

I've been given access to a friends netflix account, she pays the £6 a month and seems to be able to have an unlimited number of people sign in and use it simultaneously.
 
Use a proper PC, get a Bit Torrent Client and download whatever you want.

Films, music, books, porn.

That's what a friend told me anyway.

My internet can be a bit moody at times so I tend to download movies or tv series instead of watching them online. Kickass and TPB have most things between them- I got an excellent copy of 'Fury' the other day.. Good for e-books as well.

What's wrong with putlocker? It is a legitimate file sharing service based in London and run by a British registered business. If they are doing anything wrong, then why haven't the movie studio's closed them down?

None of this would be an issue if the movie companies moved into the 21st century. They've only just moved on from shops renting DVDs FFS.

Because of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

There's nothing particularly legitimate about any filesharing service, they were created pretty much with dishonesty in mind.

However, the DMCA exempts the owner of the service from liability, provided that they remove any infringing materiel within 48 hrs of a notification.

Of course, musicians and film and game producers don't have the time to scour every single pirate site every day, issuing DMCA takedown notices, so much of it stays where it is.

I'm not convinced. The core argument goes that when a file is shared by streaming, it isn't copied. The fact that the film industry (and others) haven't closed down Putlocker says it all; they can't. If they could, they would; it isn't as if Putlocker is hiding on some 3rd world island.

I don't buy the concept that file sharing sites were created with dishonesty in mind. Sharing copyright information has always occurred; the only difference is the scale of sharing or ban someone from giving a book they have finished with to a friend. If you want to stop people sharing files on line, then stop people putting old magazines in doctors surgeries.

The music industry has adapted, the film industry has stuck its head up its arrse....

I just explained to you why they can't.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Millennium_Copyright_Act

You can pontificate and justify and make comparisons all you like, but the law is perfectly clear. If you make purchase of a film or music video or game, then you have purchased the right to use it. It doesn't belong to you and it's quite illegal to redistribute it.

Unfortunately for the industries concerned, the person who provides the vehicle by which it's done isn't breaking the law, so long as they don't knowingly collude.

Title II: Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act
DMCA Title II, the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act ("OCILLA"), creates a safe harbor for online service providers (OSPs, including ISPs) against copyright infringement liability, provided they meet specific requirements. OSPs must adhere to and qualify for certain prescribed safe harbor guidelines and promptly block access to alleged infringing material (or remove such material from their systems) when they receive notification of an infringement claim from a copyright holder or the copyright holder's agent. OCILLA also includes a counternotification provision that offers OSPs a safe harbor from liability to their users when users claim that the material in question is not, in fact, infringing. OCILLA also facilitates issuing of subpoenas against OSPs to provide their users' identity.

The whole point is that it is being shared, not redistributed. Sharing on an online sharing site is no different from sharing in my front room or lending a DVD to a friend. its just on bigger scale. When the film industry closes down Putlocker, I'll agree with you. They can't and they know they can't.

Sharing is redistributing - that's why the owner of the site is obliged to remove any offending materiel if it's brought to his notice. As I've shown you, the owner of the site isn't currently considered to be breaking the law as *he* didn't make the copy

Whatever way you want to present it, if you upload a file, or make it available for other people to download in any way shape or form, it's been copied, either to the server or to the other person's hard drive, and the only person who is allowed to make copies of copyrighted work is the person who owns the rights. There's a small exemption for reasonable recording of TV, but that's it.

As I've said, the law is perfectly clear on this - it's just that it's more or less impossible to enforce.
