    Newbie Here!!! Question about Amazon affiliates
    Hi guys, im new here, have been reading a lot but only posting now. I posted this before, but didnt realise I made link (oops).

    So i read about this in a book called 'GetRichClick' and was wondering what the legal ramifications were:

    so imagine;

    1. you buy a good keyword domain of a famous person .... lets say like BillGates
    2. you setup a redirect from that site using affiliate amazon link
    3. Bill gates releases his new Book.
    4. you setup a google Adword from your site and redirect the traffic to amazon.

    IS this legal?? Can the book company sue you?? your not selling the book, your just helping amazon sell it, is this ok??

    Also can you do this for other products, such as weight loss programs and such from clickbank

    Thanks guys!!

    Looking forward to getting some great advice around here!!

    Question
    have you actually gone to amazon.com and read the rules for affiliates?

    Your "plan" is wrong in so many ways, I would advise you, if you're basing it on something called "GetRichClick," to throw "GetRichClick" just a far as you can fling it. Then go bury it so no one else will be messed up by it.

    I can't stop laughing and almost couldn't complete this post due to the tears in my eyes.
