Default Digital Distribution

Hi,

I was wondering how hard it is to build a digital distribution service.
I'm not talking of big ones such as Steam, Impulse, D2D or GamersGate.

But I know a lot of "small ones" have popped up recently, such as Green Man Gaming, DotEmu and obviously Good Old Games.

I'm a skilled PHP developer, experienced with CMS such as Joomla, Wordpress and Drupal. GMG and DotEmu seems quite simple websites, built upon standard CMS, so... I was wondering what you think about starting such a business.

To make one, probably not too difficult. To make it a business is a different story. How would you prevent piracy? How will you get developers to sign with you?

Are you a businessman? Or are you a programmer? Or are you both? How much money do you have for marketing and staff?
And why do you ask how hard it is to build? Because if you have to ask, well... you know.
