Its is not a good idea to download the Dallas Buyers Club movie using BitTorrent or similar software, especially in states like Texas where Dallas Buyers Club LLC is actively suing. If you are a parent make sure your children are not doing this; if you have roommates make sure your roommates are not doing this, as being a target of a federal lawsuit like this over a movie download is not fun, not fair, and is avoidable.
