    I'm only 14 so I don't really want to be ass raped in jail so if I download torrents will I get arrested or fined? From what people say they usually go after the uploader not the people downloading but will I be ok if I download torrents? I would rather be safe and buy my games but some games you just cant find anymore and I want to know if the games will work on my PC in the first place. I don't want to have my parents pay any fine either or be put in jail so I guess I'm kinda paranoid but nothing will happen if I do it right?

    You should be safe man , i do it regularly and nothing has happened to me.. If your just wanting it for downloading games personally i think you would be ok as you usually find the people getting in trouble are those downloading/uploading heavily and the ones downloading movies/music...

    I think if you download ilegal content from the internet you can ge a IP ban, but I have never heard of anyone getting it. So your chances are like 1 in a million.

    You won't get ass raped. You'll be put in with the soft criminals that aren't dangerous to anyone. Like theifs and vandals. And you're only 14 so you'll go to Juvenile.

    An ip Ban from torrenting, who would ban you ? You would be disconnected from the internet completely. That's if you refused to follow Your Isp's warnings several times though..

    I'm that 1 in a million :mad:, I got cought. It was a stupid mkistake of mine, but what happens is ABC(America Broadcasting Corperation) sends and email to the email address registered under the ip address. No jail time, just big ass fines. Don't worry, you wont get caught. I was going on vacation so i had downloads waiting for like 2 days so i left the site and downloads open for a good week. When my family and I got home my dad got the email. LUCKLY, they give warnings first saying stuff like someone might have been using you're ip address for illigal downloading, if caught again you will be fined blah blah. And if anyone is reading this, do you know if you change ip addresses will you get a clean start? Or is there anyway to clear any blackmarks?

    shit if you could be arrested for downloading torrents then I would be doing liife in jail lol.

    I have over 350 downloaded movies, courtesy of Vuze, on my PS3 and I have so many CDs and music files on my ipod, iphone, PS3, droid that I can not even count. Plus 100's of downloaded Sega, NES, and Super nintendo games that I put on my phones.
