Hello, I moved to Germany from canada 2 months ago. I found the link you guys made and read thru the translations of the EU laws and german laws. But the p2p area was short, and unclear. (google translation). It was mainly regarding copies, and protection circumvention.
Now is it illegal to download an obvious illegal file such as a movie or mp3, or was ok, since the source needed to be determined if it had broken the copying or circumvention laws?( Thats how it seemed to be translated in google)
Can I get sued from the RIAA or the German equivelant?
Reason for asking…
I download the tv episodes of LAS VEGAS. Well you can get it here but in the german language, I dont exactly speak it yet, so is it that bad to download an episode to get it in my language. (this download would ba a torrent)
Also just some music I cannot find in stores, online, and alot of U.S. ebay peeps dont ship outsinde the U.S. So my only real and last resort is to download it.
It sucks coming from Canada where they dont give a shite about what we download. For Example, my sister has had several complaint letters from movie companies to her isp, and they tell her to just get it off her shared files list!!! then tell her to have a good day!!
