Blender Models and Other Resources Repository

I was wondering what people’s opinions are on blender model and resource repositories. By resources I mean textures, materials, etc. I know that some website such as the Kator/Legaz website have struggled because of copyright problems but there is a reason that Youtube and all those other sites are still up. They have terms for posting material and offer to take down any content that is copyrighted.

Does anyone know of any sites for this kind of thing? I haven’t found any and I think it is a lacking part of the blender community. The ability to learn off other people’s work is very useful.

If there aren’t any I was also wondering if anybody would be interested in creating a site. I envision it being something where anyone can post under a license like the creative commons.

A bunch can be found here: http://www.blender.org/download/resources/

And some I use a lot…
