Even though it is illegal, the government is not coming after the end user. They are trying to shut down the sites that provide the files users are pirating.
For example Demonoid is gone.
You may also get an email, from your internet provider. About downloading stuff you are not suppose to. But a simple program like Peerblock can stop that.
