Is File Sharing Illegal?

No, file sharing is not illegal unless you're giving away copyrighted material. An example of this would be giving away music downloads to other people or downloading music from people that you have not paid for. This also refers to videos, tv shows, computer software, copyrighted eBooks, etc. Basically, you have to have permission from the owner of the copyrights to share these files or own the copyrights yourself.

Obeying all these rules will allow you to make money file sharing. There are many websites online that offer program that let you make money file sharing. Some program pay more than others, while some offer more traffic and dedicated customers than others. Choosing the right program to host your files can be difficult because there are so many aspects to cover before signing up. Or you could just sign up for all of these programs and get to the details later.

Some of these file sharing companies allow users to make money from other methods. The company File Factory lets users refer new members to their website and pays them 20% of the daily earnings that the new users make.

How to make money file sharing

The process to make money file sharing is actually really simple. You get digital information that belongs to you or that you have written permission from. You then find a company online that pays you commissions for offering your files for download. These files are usually given away free, using a customized link with the company (ex: Easy-Share) and every download that takes place gets recorded. To make money file sharing, your downloads have to be from unique visitors. You can't download your own file 20,000 times and expect to get a big paycheck in the mail.

Companies let users make money file sharing using records of their download history. These downloads are recorded from may different countries around the world. Of course the most obvious country to make money file sharing is the United States of America.
