    Yes, you'll probably go to jail. You'll be backtraced, and your house will be surrounded by over 9000 cops ready to arrest you. Consequences will never be the same.

    I'll give you an honest answer, Belloo. It depends. If the music or video is under copyright, then yes, downloading via media conversion websites or software is technically illegal as it does constitute copyright infringement. Even if the copyrighted music or video is online on Youtube for people to watch for free, downloading the video as a file makes a copy of it, and as such, it may require special permission from the copyright holder to possess.

    All in all, despite the illegal implications, it's incredibly difficult to enforce.

    In the US, even if you got caught, I seriously doubt you would go to jail. Most likely just a fine.

    In other words its not legal but you are more likely be run over by a bus or be struck by lightning than go to jail.

    That took a while before this remark was finally made haha.

    Yeah Bello, better watch your downloading behavior. You'll be assraped by every single thug on your cell block twice a day. How does that sound, maybe just pay 99 cents at the itunes store eh?

    The post above re: whether the material is copyrighted or not is the best answer on here. The RIAA has brought people to court who have illegally downloaded copyrighted songs. So, there are legal fees involved. I'm not sure there track record, but I believe they've won more often than they've lost, and almost always winning a big cash award. But, no jail time.

    The only people who go to jail are those who can't run fast enough.
