    They're a great business though

    Planning on making one, but need that "added value" other sites don't have

    @Alfer haha if you sort that out I could even help you. Ideas? Live streaming peer-to-peer porn between users (platform)? Porn rankings site? Porn crowdsourcing ideas; pitch an idea, if it gets enough people putting money on it, whoever produces that idea scene the best will get the money (voting)?

    Insert dirty "open source" joke here

    @Alfer @vertti Hmm, that's the big question. Have around $30,000 money which I can invest.
    If you have any good ideas, hit us back!

    @vertti can't see myself pitching a porn related idea : "have you ever wanted to fap to big juicy tits on a p2p network?"
    Nah, might do some research before hand, and by that, i mean, visiting every porn web site to check what they have to offer

    @Alfer well I'm sure investors get that it's a good business. Besides, I bet there are venture capital companies that fund business specific to this industry.

    Also, I don't think an idea in this industry necessarily even needs a capital investment. Plenty of ways to generate revenue there anyway.

    No matter what you decide to do I doubt anyone will fund you for making a prototype. They'll fund you once your product is already in the market and getting traction.

    Enjoy your research 😎@Alfer

    Make it open source and you will be a hero

    @IsDevEasy nah it'd just end up being deployed by pornhub or other big companies with their infrastructure. Then users would simply end up there. No value in making it open source

    @vertti users will, devs wont.. Considering the scenerio that there wont be any copyright issues, 3rd party apps will flourish, I myself want to implement an algo in this industry but all we need is the user's view data (3rd party apps data gen will take care of that)

    Now stackoverflow got a completely different meaning

    Wait.. StackoverPorn?!

    @IsDevEasy not quite sure if I get what you mean but I think generally nobody is trying to develop new tech in the porn industry. If people wanna develop new tech they'll simply develop the tech, independent of the industry its being used in.

    But isn't it exactly smart to make it not open source in your scenario? That way whoever develops the platform gets to keep the users and the data they generate. Then he could simply give a public API to access that data for developers, statisticians etc. To use for 3rd party app development and other stuff

    @vertti Not every open source license allows for commercial use! But I'm with you on this one yeah
  • 0
    @linuxxx if you think about GPL - it allows. But you are obligated to publish source code if you use GPLed code and extend it in your app.
    That does not apply to libs (lesser gpl), they can be used freely.

    @mt3o I should really look into licenses more...

    @linuxxx could you please point me where i'm wrong?
  • 1
    @mt3o Oh no more as in that I was not aware of that so I should really look into that. No clue if you're wrong 😅

    Aaah, I thought you said I was wrong! :-D

    For starters, look at MIT and Apache licenses, then 'free as in beer' and 'free as in speech' terms.
    Then about differences between GPL and rest of the licenses. This should give you some knowledge about opensource and its licenses.

    You should also read something Richard Stallman wrote. His essays are freely available in the internet. Freely as in speech! :-D
