I find several web sites that I can see films on line or download films freely. I don't have to pay for it and they don't require me to pay for it. I wonder if the websit have violated intellectual property rights. Can you download films freely or see a film freely on line? Is it legal in your country?

Yes,there are plenty of sites to do so.As par as my knowledge,I think downloading is illegal,but watching films online is not illegal.But,it takes a lot of time to stream those videos.

Most of the films available on the net for free downloads are illegal downloads. They are copyright protected and reproducing it, sharing or public display of any such films is illegal. Unless its officially released by copyright owners for free download, you are at a risk of getting caught. However there are many websites where you can watch movies online. You can also download them via torrents.

i watch some movies online whenever it is not available for download.. i prefer downloading them so i can watch later.. i think it is internationally illegal to download them but we do it anyway.. due to high cost of movies it hard to get a copyrighted one..

Ofcourse yes, there are many sites which allow us to download movies freely and watch for free as well. You need not pay any amount for them. Its very much legal.

i download and watch films from torrents these sites never keep any of the data in their server. they upload it from users who have them and give it to us. so its some type of sharing so no one can take action against them. i sometimes watch movies online, but i dont like them, i download them and watch them when i am free. These are not legal in my country. they have strict rules against piracy, but they never interfere the online piracy

Don't really have an idea if its legal or not coz the internet is so huge that they could not get to check every websites that offers those films. But its good to go, the best things in life are free.

What is illegal is Downloading , but to watch Movies online from any website which give this Service, it's tottaly Legal, plus all the Big Websites are a U.S Companies :)) but they Host them Servers and the Content in China and some Middle East Datacenters :)) So no problem at all, as long as the Country where the content is Hosted don't apply any law against the Copyright andso..
