One of the biggest destinations on the Internet for pirated content just made watching videos a lot easier, most likely to the ire of media publishers around the globe. With the help of a plugin from Torrents Time, visitors to The Pirate Bay can now stream movies and TV shows directly from their web browser instead of downloading them using a torrent client. By skipping the often laborious process of actually downloading pirated content, this is the ultimate expression of instant gratification for pirates.
Firstly, it totally depends on what you are downloading using torrents. If you are downloading copyright-protected content illegally there is a very small possibility that you may get tracked and can be arrested. But again this is highly unlikely. Recent developments have shown several people getting arrested for downloading pirated content in UK.
First spotted by Torrent Freak(Opens in a new window), we don't know how long Google has been displaying the torrent results. Torrent Freak also found that Google displays links to streaming sites known to host pirated content, like Putlocker and Alluc, alongside links to legitimate services, like Hulu and Crackle. 2b1af7f3a8
