  1. Streaming Laws in 2019

    Yeah for sure, it is definitely not to be used as a "get away with streaming" card. There should always be a hint of caution and one must always be careful. But it is interesting to see the work around streaming. I personally am quite happy with paid streams, however there are moments where you would for example want to watch Lord of the Rings and Amazon Prime Germany is just complicated and there is a while big language issue to having to find THE English version and blahblahblah. And those are the moments where a part of me is just like, "let's just stream" Haha   What VPN would you best recommend and what is the price range one should look out for? :D

    Ah okay, yeah that I figured so much. That is why I didn't want to take any risk, but I thought I'd ask just to learn more about it. Why is it that using a VPN allows people to stream more "safely"?

    Wow, a whole lot of advise to read. Thanks everybody. I will definitely keep that in mind the next time I think about using a dodgy Russian website. Haha, I just wanted to get the facts straight because I am quite happy with my legal streams but sometimes the urge for a movie that isn't on those sites arise and it's just like aw man if I know a quick link and I can watch it. But I'll keep the advise in mind and now I know more about this whole streaming business. Haha
  5. Streaming Laws in 2019

    Hi! I know this question has been asked a million times by millions of people who let me try to be as specific as I can as to why I decided to make a NEW post about the "same question".   Back in 2015, friends of mine told me that streaming is a "grey area" that is neither illegal or legal and it is also pretty safe to do without getting cought because the authories don't really pay much attention to it. Or something like that, don't quote me it was a while ago.   Back in 2018, I was told that the German goverment has tighten their streaming laws and you can now get very heavily fined for it as it is now consistered illegal. Again, please don't quote me.   So that comes to my question of what is true and what is not true in 2019? My friend in the UK streams all the time and tells me she doesn't know anybody who has ever been fined, neither do I really know of friends here, but a lot of people watch through Netflix and etc nowadays anyway. So, from all the information that I was told or heard along the way through the years, what is actually valid? Asking as somebody who desn't know much about the laws and etc.   Help? I hope this question was specific enough not to be yet enough duplicate. My apologise if it is.
