Best Answer

No, Pirate Bay is not illegal, but some of the things you download may be illegal, such as, if you download a movie made by someone and you have permission for it to be hosted for free download, then it is fine. But if someone is hosting a movie by Universal Studios then you download it, it IS illegal. Be weary of what you download :).

How do you get on pirate bay for free?

The Pirate Bay is legal in countries outside the US. US laws forbid sites like this but there site's servers are not in the US so the US can't do anything. You can not be safe on these kind of websites downloading things. If your internet provider finds out they my tell you to stop and there will be legal consequences if you continue. You may or may not get caught but there is no way to make sure you don't get caught. I would recommend not downloading things from illegal sites.
