One recurring topic concerning the transfer has been the legal liability.

Honestly, I don't see the major hurdle that would be. As far as I can see, there are only two possible legal threats:

1. copyright issues

2. legal action taken against the site from within or without (other than copyright)

 

We have had copyright issues here. As it turns out, all that happens when a DMCA is filed against the site is that we need to comply with NING's demand to take down the material in question (regardless of the frivolity or seriousness of the claim) and file a counter claim. We already have experience with that. As long as we are not making any profit on the site, there can't be any kind of further claim ensuing from a DMCA.

The other perceivable legal action possible is any kind of "suing" for real or hallucinated mistreatment of individual users. Basically, the site can't be held responsible for insults or threats members endow each other with. Harassment, occurring or fantasized, falls under the same pov, it's a thing between individuals and at max, VH would be asked to give out the material in question.

Discrimination could be a point (members have spoken about suing VH for that) but honestly, do you see anyone following through with that kind of threat, that would be based on what??

But maybe I'm not seeing everything there is to this point.
