    Hi all!

    I was wondering if torrent is illegal in belgium? And if it is illegal, what is the chance that you get caught?

    Yes it's illegal. I would suggest you google "Tor"

    Hope I've helped you!

    Your chances are as high as anyone else. Your ISP can figure it out and report you or you'll be found out another way. It's hard to say what your chances are. If you're worried, don't do it.

    Torrents are not illegal, AFAIK. Copying data that is in copyright, i.e. software, music, video, IS.

    In other words: it depends what you torrent.

    ^ This.

    Completely depends on the torrent you are downloading.

    Using torrents to download a new movie that just came out in theaters -> illegal
    Using torrents to download something free like Ubuntu or non copyright material -> legal

    As for chances getting caught downloading copyright material, I have no idea but I'd imagine they're pretty low but it really depends on what, how and quantity you are torrenting.
