It would be awesome if you all checked out the AMV sharing site I'm currently trying to make. However it needs support. So check it out and leave feedback if possible. Thanks. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cuban/kuruko-the-amv-sharing-site

1. the sharing site could end up promoting the sharing of copyrighted material. which means it will almost certainly be used to do just that.
2. there are already a whole ton of services dedicated for sharing data, including amv. even youtube or niconico.
3. those services are already available for free (though you'd need paid to get a good service)

I'm getting so sick of kickstarters.

You better have a plan for dealing with copyright infringement issues.

I didn't know there are restrictions to uploading amv. It should be fine as long as no money is earned. If you setup a community, wont those 'money-hungry corporations' still hunt you down lol

even if you give pirated content for free, you still get ad revenue.

It would only take a single claim from a license holder of either a song or an anime used in the production of a single AMV to take your whole project down.
Apart from that, if they also decide to press charges you'll be in even bigger trouble.

Sorry to say this, but while your idea is nice, this won't wield the results you want.

Anime producers and license holders may be quite lenient when material from their productions is used for creative projects, but the music industry is ruthless.

Wow, I'm surprised this is still on Kickstarter. Definitely should be reported.
