Good day
Is it legal to download TV series from the internet in Germany?

Definitely yes. More importantly it is also illegal to upload (parts) at the same time as it is done with P2P software (Bittorent, EMule, etc.).


The risk to be caught is particularly high when using P2P software.

My question was whether it is LEGAL to download TV Series. You said "yes".

The answer you gave seems to say it is LEGAL but ILLEGAL to upload...


Is my understanding correct?

Sorry, of course I mean it illegal, sorry!
