are these websites.. legal?
is torrenting legal?
Call me old fasion.. but, after they arrested that first person back in the 1990s, I stopped downloading music/movies/tv shows on the internet...
Don't get me wrong, I filled my 120 GB Dell Tower, 3 times over, but, I stopped, and I haven't illegally downloaded anything since...
If people dont torrent and download then we would all be having to go to blockbuster to pay 10 bucks to rent a movie for 2 days and if were late it would be another 5 bucks. Music is the same. Things like pandora or spotify would have never been thought of if people didn't pirate. It keeps the music and movie industry from having a monopoly and having people pay ridiculous prices.
if you put fair prices to movies and show like netflix does then people will pay. I have had netflix for 3 years now.I still torrent movies though and shows that aren't on netflix. But I will always watch a movie or show that is on netflix. It provides the best product and is way better than something I torrent.
Provide a reasonably priced service and people will pay. People prefer to do things legally(Most do) and thats why netflix,spotify,steam,etc do so well.
