    Guys
    I just found out http://www.divxcrawler.com/
    It is offering unlimited downloads for a one-time lifetime membership fee of $12.

    I wanted to know if any of you have used it before, is it good ? & whether it is legal.

    Thanks

    Looks like it could be a search robot capturing other peoples content and feeding it on without regard for copyright to me.

    If you join and find its not a con please PM me as it does look interesting if its for real and "legal"

    I think the first question from FAQ explains everything. They are not even signed on the site, any contact form except email...

    Im pretty sure its illegal to sell other peoples work without paying them a percentage. I doubt that site is paying any copyright holders.

    I'm sure Divx wouldn't like their name being associated in that URL, either :)

    This is illegal... It has been posted on many warez sites and directories.
    Do not pay for any of this.

    Why pay for it when you can watch it for free? There's like sites out there where they link to other sites where you can watch the movie through streaming and it's legal too because the site are just providing links.

    Right, but it seems a little risky being the "enabler" to such activity. Don'tcha think? I'd be afraid to stream Copyright movies on my site. :(:eek:

    Excellent, I see this is a very old post. I hope I didn't reply in it last year :p

    Wish i could find you the article i saw.

    Lady get sueded big time from here IP Address think was some huge fine

    per download. Be very careful with this.

    The studios are really cracking down on this working very hard with the
    FBI.

    We all at one time have watched a film online that we know were not

    suspose to, but the risks right now are very high not only

    for the people hosting this but the end users will suffer as well.

    Just a thought.

    But be very careful DP members.
