    Default Is it legal to watch movies online?

    I assume it is only a problem if you download them, but I'm not sure. What I do is: I watch them online first, then buy them if I like them, especially since most of the legal downloads are in German, and I like to watch them in English first.

    Is this okay? I assume so, since I am neither distributing them, selling them, or downloading them, but I just wanted to check.

    You're not paying anything to watch them? Hmmm...it doesn't matter where you watch them. If the people who own the copyrights don't get paid either by you or the people responsible for making movies available online, then it's not ok.

    Okay, here's a more pertinent question: How do I know if the people are paying, and how do I know if it is okay or not? I mean, I don't want to do anything wrong, and I'm more than okay with paying a little bit to get a preview before I buy, but these sites don't ask for payment, so I wasn't sure.

    What kind of sites are they? *asks Sky innocently without any ulterior motives in mind *

    If the sites don't explicitly indicate that they are paying for them, they're probably not.

    Hmm, I cannot really remember the names. I mean, I don't spend 12 hours a day watching such movies. I watch maybe 1 a year, and if I like it, I buy it. I just do not want to buy it and have it suck, which has happened to me a few times.

    It is like trying on a suit before I buy it: I would never shoplift, but I want to make sure the darn thing fits and looks good before I buy it and take it home, especially if they do not accept returns. :-/

    Oh hellz no! I would not distribute. I don't even know how lol. I just want to preview the movie before I buy, and if I like it, I buy it online through a valid carrier like iTunes or something.

    It's easy. Step 1: Download a movie. Step 2: Make multiple DVD copies of it. Step 3: Find your nearest ghetto and sell them for 5 bucks out of the trunk of your car.

    Ha! Hard copies, finding a ghetto, wasting so much time, that's just crazy talk. It would be so much easier to set up an online bootleg distribution website thingy. It's the 21st century after all. :rolli:
