    no, its not.

    No but for them to find out would involve, entering your house and physically checking your hard drive.

    Not exactly likely.

    (Don't blame me if any authorities do pay a visit though)

    really.........copyright laws i worry about,especially on the download torrents such as btjunkie,pirate bay....

    You should have kept quiet.
    This thread has now alerted the authorities, and they'll be monitoring you.

    Yeah if you don't pay for it normally illegal. Just buy the dvds instead.

    Yeah it is not like anyone needs to be paid for producing, writing, directing, acting etc etc.
    I mean people do it all for free.

    Not sure how much advertising revenue would increase if I watched Coronation street 'live' on ITV rather than download it for my collection

    So the producer doesn't get a penny until I sit down and watch it live on the tv eh?

    criminal offense - no
    civil offence - yes
    unless of course you are uploading too then yes to both

    Torrents weren't mentioned at that point.
