Re: Are concert bootlegs legal?

It is illegal as strictly speaking it is copyright violation. However, it is 'generally accepted' that sharing audiorecordings is a hobbyist venture engaged in by, well, mostly men with beards.

While commercial bootlegging does exist, sites like these are fairly safe. There is no financial gain from this.

Read the rules though, as piracy (as Napster and the Piratebay engage in) is a serious violation of copyright law and could incur hefty fines. But you won't have to worry about that here when downloading any material.
