    I have noticed a number of websites popping up offering unlimited legal downloads of movies, music, software etc., for prices in the region of $30 a year?

    One site is even a sponsored link from AV Forums.

    These are a couple of examples

    www.easydownloadcenter.com
    www.internetdownloads.org

    I already started a topic here but wondered if anyone on this forum has any thoughts?

    No-one any opinions?

    Are they legal?
    If not how are they getting away with it?

    All your really buying is rebranded versions of P2P software (most of which is free anyway). Your legal rights for downloading/uploading things through this software is exactly the same as everyone elses - if it is under copyright you need the permission of the copyright holder.

    These sites are simply a ripoff.

    So in essence yes they are legal but as long as you don't download anything which is copyrighted :)

    Which is ironic (and not in an Alanis way either)
