    Simply read the comments of the torrent. If there is a virus, people will let you know. I would only get ones with good comments. If there is no comments, I move on.

    Virus can spread in any passion over internet.
    It can spread even emails. So, do we stop using emails? ;)

    Trust good uploads and have a good anti virus installed.
    I use torrents to download movies i like and so far I faced no bad experiences.

    I think it's safe to download movies via torrent... just always check the file extension before opening a file.

    You risk being fined a hefty amount, I personally prefer to buy the real thing from stores to help support the artist/film maker, just be careful, I hear from alot of people that changing your IP address will help keep you undetected
