It’s pretty common for people these days to download illegal digital content. It’s seems so common that people have forgotten that this is illegal. It also comes with the risk of downloading viruses onto your computer. We spend a lot of time removing viruses from computers that were used for downloading movies illegally. At times I wonder if the economics add up. It seems they pay us enough to rent quite a number of movies.
