    OP, You're obviously trying to pirate movies while being scared of getting your Mac infected with viruses (this is not your first post about this). Perhaps you should rent/buy the movies instead, considering your Mac costed a hell lot more than the movies, yet you still bought it.

    Why is being correct considered being on a high horse? Maybe you should hold yourself to higher standards. :rolleyes:

    As long as you don't pay for it it is pirating.

    If you shoplift a DVD from a store, does that count as stealing or do you have hold a gun to the shop owner's face and say give me the movie for it count as stealing?

    I hereby authorize you to download anything and everything you find on the internet.

    If there's no payment required, that's a plus.

    Enjoy the beauty of the greatest communication network ever built by the human race.

    :rolleyes:

    It's quite safe, and the quality is often superior from what you get via commercial channels. Various peer-to-peer networks have revealed themselves to be the best way of sharing culture in our modern day and age, and you should not be ashamed for supporting non-commercial distribution channels for culture.

    The internet in general and file sharing in particular has revolutionised the dissemination of culture globally, and democratised consumption of culture in a truly amazing way.

    Do ignore the anti-culture moral trolls posting in this thread.

    This is clearly a discussion of pirated materials which is not allowed anywhere on MacRumors.
