Hi all,

Is downloading torrent files illegal, or is it dependent on the content downloaded?

I just got off Apple Support that viewed my desktop for quality assurance purposes, and they may have recorded a shot of torrent text files in one of my folders, though it doesn't show exactly what was downloaded, just the websites text files.

I'm worried if it's illegal they may send such screenshots to my government police and I'll be penalized.

Thanks a lot.

yep you're fucked, this is what you get for choosing apple

torrent depends on what you downloaded, because it's your responsibility to check that you don't download something with copyright. what makes it far worse then is the seeding, because you help to provide something illegal.

So as long as the file didn't include any copyright information in what was shown, there is no proof that it was a copyrighted file, right?

I downloaded 1 file from pirate bay, and this is what appeared in my finder (what apple must have seen), different text files from several sites I've never visited:

1.) Downloading torrents is completely 100% legal everywhere
2.) Downloading torrents with content you have no rights to own ( copyrighted ) is illegal

Piracy and Copyright infringement carry 5 years jail time, and a $500,000 fine.

You should be packing your bags on your way to Mexico as soon as possible.

my knowledge tells me that a torrent can be named randomly and could be everything, if there is no specific track left. The possibility that some police found out what you did by IP tracing and what they all can do, is several times higher than getting admonished by apple shit in this case. But don't rely on me.
