Default Torrents

Say I wanted to use a torrent to download several GB's of data. Will this be tracked? What's the likeliness of getting caught?

Small chance of getting caught, but still a chance, and if you do then you're majorly screwed. I would recommend youtube converting music. Can't put the site here though, not that I do it of course.

Well I use uTorrent to get movies and shows. I have no chance of getting caught where I live; There's bigger problems to deal with and the authority honestly doesn't even give a shit. If you want to download music then you can use mp3ify.net which will guarantee you the best sound quality download of that song from youtube videos. Or you can check out soundcloud.com which is also really good.

Also, it's perfectly legal if the content is not copyrighted. It's illegal if the content is copyrighted, but there's a very slim chance of being caught

Well I was actually thinking about Sim City 4. I think this is all bull 'cause I actually bought the game several years ago, then I lost it, and now I learned how to actually play the game 'cause I'm somewhat intelligent now. So... I really should be allowed to just download the game...

Default Re: Torrents

there are lots of Torrent Sites .. The trick would be to check the comments , the "Seed" and the "Lead" ... the ranking aswell... Then you realize the torrent has no any Virus ... Then with a crack simply you can play the game... But yeah thats called "Pirate" downloading ^_^

Slim to none. I've torrented 17 GB worth of data (and let me tell you, that's a pain in the ass) and I wasn't caught.

Really, so long as you don't go bragging about how you got it by torrent then it shouldn't be a problem.
But check any comments, how many seeds and leeches there are, how long it's been active. Things like that.

Even if one does get caught, the chances of actually having to experience massive legal problems is very slim. Usually companies send a threatening letter telling you to stop as a first measure and then continue to prosecution if you don't stop.

Default Re: Torrents

^^ Well said ^^^

But evolution, I would be careful if I were you.
New law being enforced in North America, that they are going to start tracking torrents more, and that if you get caught with something you haven't paid for, or share something that you do not own distribution rights for, you will be in deep shit.
Either $1.37 million could be asked of you. 15 years minimum jail sentence. And (unconfirmed as of 2nd November) In states where death penalty is still legal... well... you work it out

I've dl'd over 600GB of media through utorrent.

Never been caught.

Then again, some countries are probably more anal about it.
