When people talk about internet piracy, one of the most frequently asked questions is whether downloading torrent is legal or not. Torrents are set of files that act as a key to download the actual content. For example when you want to download using torrent file, you will need to download the torrent file with the extension .torrent and after that use software like BitTorrent to open the file. People use torrent files when the desired file is not available for free.
By the above explanation, you will see that torrents are illegal because most torrent files are someone else's works which are not available for free, that is why you couldn't get it for free. Using torrent files is as using a copyrighted material, those torrent pirates get their files through illegal means and as a result infringing on the right of the originator of the actual files. Torrents are nothing but illegal
