It's illegal to copy (download), distrubute (upload/seed), and have pirated copies in your possession. In most (not all) countries that abide by copyright laws you can get prosecuted for any and all of those things for each item you have.

Will they know and catch you? Probably not unless you are hardcore.

Personally I don't worry. I don't follow the law because it's the law. I do what I believe is right and almost all the time that is within the bounds of the law. There are somethings I do that are agains the law but that is because the law is wrong. I don't download things if they are offerred for sale at a reasonable price.

While I believe pirating is wrong and do not agree with the practice I think that the internet police should not be so worried about it as the entertainment industry want them to be, they should not give piracy a second thought until all of the more abhorrent aspects of the internet like child porn rings etc are completely stamped out and the offenders hung by their necks until dead.

Nope. My ISP practices a "3 strike" rule, and I've yet to get a single strike. Then again I don't tend to download anything where there's likely to be strict copyright enforcement, mainly books.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

The point is that I am not concerned about the law in as much as the possibility of "being caught doing something wrong" because I strive to do what is right regardless of legality. I have a reasonable intellect and strong sense of empathy for my fellow human beings that enables me to determine what is right and wrong. I also have the courage to follow through even when it is tempting and easy to do something that is wrong and the risk of getting caught is low.

If that makes me a "special snowflake" then whatever.

i used to worry, but then i just stopped. i discovered bandcamp, which is where i get most of my music for free now, i got a job, and i started buying all my things. plus, the job gives me less time to wander the internet and download things.
so...no. not really.
You dirty piece of shit, you.

I smoked weed with my mom once.
It was the weirdest moment of my life, and I`ve been caught with my dick in my hand, by my brother, with a giant close up of a dudes face on the tv.

this is why you use direct downloads.

I only torrent software and anime. Software I don't seed, and the anime usually isn't licensed in America anyway.

I snapped my high E once and sliced my finger open, so I can only assume snapping the low E would put me into a coma or something.

Reasonable price? You call one whole dollar for a measly little song reasonable?

Company's have every right to fine us for stealing their shit.
Company's shouldn't have the right to fine us $10,000 for each $.99 song.

I download shows and movies because they take forever to come out here in Australia. I'm sure they still make their millions and millions anyway. If I truly love a band I'll buy their music.

Don't foreign DVDs play in Aussie players?

In other words, can't you just have the DVDs shipped by Amazon or something?

It depends on which region they have. The states have region 1 right?
We have region 2 in europe. But I guess he could go online and get a code to unlock his dvd player and make it region free.
Also order some vaseline, coz you gonna get it up your stink hole in prison if you're caught file sharing.
