    it depends on where you live, still no problem in Canada. I would very much doubt you would have a problem in China or many other countries. In the U.S. the "land of the free" probably yes.

    The idea of torrents is not illegal. You can use torrents to download different Linux versions (which is legal since they're all open-source), and other open-source software.

    However, downloading music albums, software, movies, etc., is illegal and is theoretically traceable.

    the programs are legal, it's the to use them that can be illegal.

    It's how you use them, if you download illegal stuff then of course it's illegal.
