How illegal is popcorn time?

Finally! A forum where we can all discuss what's hot, what's not, what movies or TV shows you must watch, who's your favorite actor, character, and what not...
Popcorn Time is all about movies and TV shows, so why aren't we all talkin' about that?

Actually, it's illegal. So, if you live in a country where downloading illegal stuff from the Internet isn't allowed, I recommend you to use a VPN while downloading movies.

So should we just use the VPN that the popcorn time app provides?

So I have a lifetime subscription to "vpNUnlimited" but when I am connected, I dont see PT get started downloads at all... is that normal, or is there something I need to do?

Any good VPN will do mine is under $40 a year, but you can choose anything, the other option is be unable to be sued if your on SSI in America under law even a government lawsuit or fine is uncollectable. I have a relative who works for the government on this area and well his view companies can threaten to sue once you say ones only income is SSI then every time this came up for such a person they never bothered them again. But its a small group and well if it changes they can still get a court order to go after any and all income if you get anything on paper but that costs money and is unlikely to be done. But working poor they can garnish income until its paid and they might do so.

But be practical if you can afford a VPN then do so taking that risk is not worth it to save a few bucks.

pretty much, unless they have rights to speculate the content, but who cares, VPN your connection and you are good to go...

I don't think it's legal... However, nobody has forbidden to use it! Or, did I miss out something?

Every movie site with legal right is illegal. so the question doesn't make sense How illegal is this. there is no quantity for being illegal.
