    The only illegal thing about downloading songs, movies, etc. is the copyright, if it is copyrighted and you don't pay for it, it is and always will be illegal.

    Many copyrighted items may be legally shared on p2p file-sharing apps -- they either give that right in advance or allow that right on request.

    Some, although not legal to upload/share/distribute, may be legal and ok to download.

    But it is true that the majority ARE protected by copyright and the copyright holders (who often aren&#39;t the makers of the items in question) can and will protest if they can locate you.

    RIAA, MPAA, and BSA all are pouring massive amounts of money into companies DEDICATED to locating copyright violations on the internet, particularly on file-sharing programs. Kazaa/KL++ is probably the MOST monitored.

    However, using the RIAA ip blocker (and keeping it up-to-date), hiding listing of your shared files, blocking ip port 1214 (and using a different one) seriously hampers their actions. BUT... for MPAA and BSA, they WILL send out Cease And Desist notices if they spot you sharing even 1 movie or program they control copyrights to. This will basically force you to quit sharing that movie/program or they may take legal action. (But they have to find you again to verify you DIDN&#39;T quit sharing&#33 Get too many of those notices and your ISP may cut you off.

    The RIAA wouldn&#39;t dare harrass someone (just yet) for sharing 1 MP3 of a copyrighted song they control, so they either have to be able to aquire a long list of shared files by you via multiple or broad searches... or they have to basically hack the network or your computer in ways which are illegal. It&#39;s called man-in-the-middle hacking attacks, because they&#39;re acting like a point between you and whoever you&#39;re connecting to and listening to everything they can decode.
