Parents warning

It is important for parents to discuss the topic of illegal movie, music and software downloading with their kids.  This is a serious issue and illegally downloading copyrighted digital content belonging to third parties can be against the law and can lead to civil and even potentially criminal prosecutions if the matter is serious enough.  There are allegedly over 480 different services online where you can LEGALLY download content so it is important to have the discussion about the illegal use of Torrents.
