Or you could always shell out a mean $16 for the DVD and stop using Pirate Bay...

EDIT: I'm not trying to be mean (I've gotten in trouble for torrenting before) It's just not worth it.

Why on earth would anybody want to do that?

I've gotten two or three of those too. You don't get them for downloading, you get them for leaving your torrents up and seeding them.

Exactly. They catch you sharing it with other users so they take it as you're distributing copy written material, which you technically are. If you're on a public torrent server just end it right when its download, I never seed unless its a private site.

So its OK to download off torrent sites then? I'm a bit confused on the whole matter and as a result have just not downloaded anything for a good while now.

I don't think it's legal, but they aren't going to go after you for downloading it. They are gonna go after the people making it available for others to get for free.

I download as much WWE stuff as I can. I used to buy the DVDs until I got a Blu-ray player and wanted everything in HD. Up until recently, WWE had a pretty shitty Blu-ray selection. Well, it still sucks, but at least they're putting their monthly shows on Blu now versus just Wrestlemania. So, I might re-consider buying them again when there is a show worth paying for. With torrents, I can get the 720p rip a day or two after the event, make my own cover art, put it in a case, and place it on my shelf. Does that make me less of a wrestling fan for not supporting them? Maybe. I couldn't care less, I'm not hurting Vince's pocket.

Most of my old WWE DVDs were impulse buys anyways, I just had money to burn and bought them. I'm a bit older now and money is tight, so I make cuts where ever needed. Hell, I haven't bought a video game in almost 2 years. I don't download those because my consoles aren't modded, but everything else I don't NEED/want for my collection I gank off the internet.

Downloading for me is just a lot easier. I got a notice from the MPAA for seeding some movies last year. It scared me, but I just noticed I gotta be more careful. Be mindful of what site you download from and don't seed unless you have to for ratio purposes.

I told my gf the day they punish file sharing/downloading with public hangings is the day I stop lol

LoL,some of the people here are actually affraid to use torrents fpalm
Do you also buy original videogames and movie DVDs and pay to watch PPVs?
The amount of sheer retardation on this forum amazes me.

that's why you never seed those files. download that shit, then get it off whatever program you downloaded it on.
