Torrenting itself is actually legal, if they're linked to non-copyrighted material, but this often isn't the case. Unless the person releasing the torrent is a small-time developer, it probably contains something they don't own in it. While anyone that doesn't go on a Torrent downloading spree is unlikely to get caught, it's still important to check your download speed and size, and make sure you're not going to get on anyone's radar.
