      In Russian law only sharing is illegal, not downloading. And proving your intent is impossible if you don’t have formal education. Basically “I didn’t know” is rock-solid defence.

        I think it’s technically the same in Germany but indent doesn’t matter that much so it’s illegal even if you claim you didn’t know. Also owning it is also illegal I think. When you stream it, you don’t own it.

        And honestly I don’t see the benefit of downloading it. Do I have to wait till the whole season is out or do I torrent each episode separately? Neither sounds fun. I can just click the episode I want to watch and watch it. Why bother to download it as a whole?

          What does this has to do with anything? You just download and watch. You can even download and watch at the same time. Or download and watch later even without internet.
