  • It depends. There are various reputable sites, hulu.com is probably the biggest one, and those are totally legal. If you're watching a bootleg copy of something that is still in cinemas then that's illegal. It's also illegal to post copyrighted material on youtube unless you own the copyright so if someone posts a movie there they're breaking the law and you're breaking the law by watching it. They're not likely to be coming after you though, bigger fish to fry.

  • It's a gray area, really. From what I understand, it's illegal to post them, but not illegal to watch them.
