We Do These Things Constantly, Even Though They’re All ILLEGAL


We manage to do a plethora of things every single day without even actually thinking about the legality of our actions. When we actually take a minute, we realize that some things can lead us to trouble.

Don’t believe us? Well, we’re going to run down 10 things we do all the time that are actually illegal.

Don’t Download This Song

Illegal downloading hurts both entertainment and music industries. Those caught downloading from torrents can face up to five years in jail. If $10 for an album is too much for thieves, a possible $150,000 fine per downloaded file would wake them up.
