Hi, I like to download both old and more recent sports, be it NBA, NHL, etc. I also have a big collection of foreign game shows as well downloaded from torrents. I have lately began to wonder if it this a sin. It is illegal technically, but I don’t believe that it should be in either case. I say that because, the games and shows I download, you cannot buy, and most likely never will be able to buy. Furthermore, I do not intend to make money off of these by selling them, I simply download them to enjoy for my own personal use.
Besides that, really I’m just doing the same thing I could do with a VCR. With a VCR you can record and playback shows for watching later, and with this you can download a game or show, and then watch it later when you feel like doing so.
All that being said, I would like to know your thoughts on this, as to whether or not downloading these things is a sin.
