Its a P2P software...So depending on what you download and share it could or could not be legal....Just like limewire really....i stay clear of these things...Can get you in trouble sometimes, the software isnt a problem....Good luck!

The client is not the issue with legality, it's what people share, which a lot of is NOT legal.

What is it that you want to share/download?

It's not legal, it's a file sharing site you pay for.

Google 'shareaza review'

Shareaza - shareaza.com - is one of several sites that advertise millions of free downloads and then take money for recommending and supporting free P2P file sharing software.

The advertising on shareaza.com is misleading. Visitors may think they are signing up for a service that offers millions of legal music and movie downloads. Instead they are paying for Shareaza to recommend and support free P2P file sharing software.

This brings up several questions:

Is file sharing legal?
File sharing in and of itself is legal as long as the files are not copyright protected. What they don't tell you is that a huge majority of P2P network files are copyrighted content and therefore illegal to download.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has taken legal action against more than 30,000 people for downloading and/or sharing copyrighted music.
Does P2P file sharing software normally cost money?
No it does not. While shareaza.com doesn't mention what your paying for on their home page if you dig deeper you'll find that the cost is for their recommendation and support of the free file sharing software.
Is Shareaza doing anything illegal?
They make sure to cover the bases in different areas of the site advising you to follow all copyright laws. Hmm I wonder how many files that leaves you to download...
Is Shareaza misleading visitors?
We definitely find their site misleading. Visit McAfee Site Advisor for more opinions of the site.

You're downloading whatever they send you so while the service itself is no dangerous than other any service where you're directly connected to someone (e.g. some chat services) they can easily send you a virus instead of the download you wanted and AV programs aren't infallible.
