Can I get into legal trouble if I download pirated movies or music?
Many people in Australia download pirated content. In fact, we are one of the biggest culprits in the world. However, getting into legal trouble for this practice is generally quite unusual unless you are a repeat offender. Internet service providers usually issue a warning should you be identified as a pirate. Larger ISPs such as Telstra generally seem to protect their user base from legal action.
The only way to be sure you will be on the receiving end of a law suit is to simply not download or share pirated material. An affordable option for you may be Netflix and/or Spotify.
