    Would a server in Czech Republic be considered "offshore" enough to host an applications/movie linking website website?

    Both of you are incorrect. Offshore means that the country doesn't have laws that prohibit you from doing something that's illegal in your own country. For some that means lower taxes, others warez-linking and so forth

    The term offshore company is ambiguous. It may refer to either:

    1. A company which is incorporated outside the jurisdiction of its primary operations regardless of whether that jurisdiction is an offshore financial center (sometimes known as a non-resident company) i.e. a Canadian company may be 'offshore' for the purposes of a USA citizen.
    2. Any company (resident or otherwise) incorporated in an offshore financial center, i.e. offshore jurisdictions

    You are wrong....

    Correct!

    Please don't...




    czech republic is considered offshore as it is in no way connected to the USA.

    USA is considered "onshore" in hosting terms.

    Even mexico and canada can be considered "onshore" at time if they are somehow connected to the USA by government or diplomatic laws.

    Any other country/city/town/magical land not in the USA is offshore.

    Well if you live in India, USA is considered offshore. The word OFFSHORE in this website has been turned into OFFSHORE=WAREZ SAFE

    so Im guessing his question is "Is Czech Republic safe for warez?"

    Czech doesnt seems to be very strict about warez/porn. Nowadays thr are thousand sites showing Czech girls banging in streets. So i guess the law isnt so stinky.

    I wouldn't say CZ is safe. We have law that says you can download music and videos for personal use. But you can't upload any copyrighted material. Which means that anti-piracy companies are going more after uploaders. But I know that huge Czech warez linking forum is hosted in CZ and it works there usually like, they will get letter from anti-piracy company (I think). There are links to threads which they want forum owners to delete. So owners will do and everything is okay again.

    Also... CZ has some well known file hosts like hellshare, uloz.to or czshare. And uloz.to already said that they are not searching for warez on their servers. They will delete files only when they will get DMCA. But anti-piracy company already stated that they are gathering evidence to take care of uloz.to.

    And yes, we are in EU and we are co-working with USA in many ways. But internet stuff is not one of it.
