What are the consequences of illegal downloading?
jail There can be both civil and criminal consequences. On the civil side, you may be sued for both compensatory and punitive damages for copyright infringement. On the criminal side more likely it will be a fine, but jail time is theoretically a possibility if the illegal downloading is serious enough.

Is downloading videos illegal?
downloading copyrighted videos/movies is illegal. Actually, it is fine as long as you get them from the network sites. Any random person posted pirated videos is illegal. Some people skirt copyright law though by only posting part of an episode and having other people post the other parts. If the video is under a certain length, it is technically legal to watch it on the internet.

Is vuze an illegal website?
It's only ILLEGAL if you are downloading material that is COPYRIGHTED (movies, music, etc.). It is perfectly LEGAL if you are downloading freeware material that are not copyrighted. To improve this answer.It is the same as downloading music from sites like kazah. The FBI walks in to your ISPs office to get list of people downloading copyrighted music or movies.They prosecute you. My niece had about 40 songs downloaded,they wanted to charge her 1500.00 per song.My mom hired a lawyer,he got the total fine dropped to 5000.00,still kinda expensive. That's 5000.00 plus legal fees. Remember this while your downloading movies and music.
Is downloading torrents illegal in India?
It depends on what type of material you are using, If your downloading copyrighted material than yes, that would be illegal, torrents are just a means, a mechanism by which you can make the download , there are many file sharing programs you can use to to share files. frostwire is one bearshare is another just off the top of my head, It isn't the torrent that is illegal it is what you do with it, or what type of files that you chose to download that may be illegal. If you download public domain type files or ones that don't have any commercial type rights attached to them prohibiting you from downloading them without paying for them than yes that would be illegal. However if you avoid doing that and stick to files without any copyright etc you will be fine.
