Is it legal to watch Megavideo movies?
Answer: Some say it’s legal to watch Megavideo movies and videos, but ONLY if you watch movies that have already come out on DVD. Megavideo lets users watch both films which are in the theaters as well as movies that have come out on DVD. Megavideo can’t host videos that are still in the theaters because that’s illegal. Megavideo relies solely on uploaded content. If you look hard enough that content can be found free somewhere on the internet, which may or not be legal content. Megavideo itself is a legal, legit website because it operates from a country where piracy laws do not exist. Downloading music or a movie from megavideo is the same as downloading it from limewire or piratebay, only megavideo stops your movie at 72 minutes and allows you to unlock it for a price. So megavideo is a legal website that depending on your local copyright laws in your own country, you may be doing something illegal.
