Can you get in trouble for downloading torrents?

I download torrents often and right now I'm downloading the Joe Satriani discography but what are the chances that I'll get in trouble

or get caught by some anti piracy group?

Your mom taught you sharing was good, right?

 

So you're doing the right thing.

 

So do it, and do it often.

i completely took that in a sexual context.

No, you were right the first time.

 

If you took it any other way, it would be a waste.

 

So do that, and come up for air often.

Edit Preferences


Assuming you are using a proper torrent client and not BitComet or whatever else has "bit" in it's name.

I'd recommend Deluge or uTorrent (Deluge is better)

For Deluge the option is under Network settings.

I'm using Utorrent and I have an option under preference for Protocol Encryption so should I select Disabled, Forced or Enabled? I don't understand this really.

Honestly, why use a delivery truck for a stakeout?

 

Wouldn't they notice when it's taking six hours to deliver those flowers?

The chances are very low but they are not quite zero.  The RIAA has not been doing particularly well in court lately, however, so perhaps you have nothing about which to worry.

Enabled is what I would choose. But forced does sound intriguing....

I'm informing the authorities of your illegal activites.

 

I hope you like taking showers with big, black, sex-starved men.
