How does Movierulz make money?

Now the main question is that if Movierulz is allowing its users to download all the content on it for free then how does Movierulz make money?

Before this let us tell you a bit about Digital Piracy and how does Movierulz comes into this term. Digital Piracy is an act where a person or a group of person with enough resources and simple technical knowledge can steal someone’s intellectual property like say the movies or TV shows to violate their basic content proprietary rights.

They can then set up a website and upload all of that stolen digital data in form of movies and TV shows on their website. This entire act is called Digital Piracy and it exists because there are always people who are willing to watch movies and TV shows for free and there are also people who are willing to earn money by exploiting this Global Need.

What drives these digital pirates to commit Digital Piracy?

There are lots of reasons for digital pirates to compel them for Digital Piracy but the few most common ones are as follows.

1.       Most of the folks are willing to pay for online content like movies, TV shows, and games but most just simply do not agree to this reason. They are of the view that all this knowledge and propriety knowledge must be distributed for free to the less fortunate.

2.       One other reason is that there are already such a vast majority of digital pirates all across the world that newer ones in this illegal business say what difference our piracy can make. So, this just rolls up into a snowball effect and piracy is increasing day by day.

3.       Another reason is that these folks think that the producers of these movies, TV shows, games or software have already made lots of money. Now it is not wrong to distribute this content to others for free and make a small sum of money in the process of doing so.

Movierulz: Generating Money Via Advertisements

Revenue generation from advertisements is the primary source of digital income for MovieRulz and other such profit-making web 2.0 websites.

These websites mostly generate revenue from two types of ads.

From direct website ads

From Video ads that run during the streaming of the content

The ads on Movierulz mostly are visible on its actual web pages. There are also some pop-up ads that open in separate tabs when you click on a certain file. Clicking the file activates these ads.

There are also Movierulz mirror websites that offer live streaming to watch movies or TV shows online. These websites tend to generate their income through ads during the streaming process. Ads will display mid-streaming; either video ads or pictorial ads; and you need to either watch the video ad fully or close the pictorial ad to resume playing your streaming content.

We know that this is extremely annoying situation but hey guys, you get to watch all those movies for free, so you must tolerate this annoyance to some extent.

Will you go to jail for using Movierulz or other such websites?

These websites are earning money legitimately (with loopholes in the security features and law). So, to answer it simply, no! You will not go to jail or be fined for viewing the content on such websites. As for the owners of these websites, they are also quite impossible to find in the first place; arresting them is another thing. Oftentimes, these websites just get shut down. In recent times, the government has taken strict actions against digital piracy and lots of torrent websites have been shut down. As for Movierulz it got shut down multiple times but each time there is a mirror link in operation to provide its free services.
