Rapidshare

Hello, is it true that downloading movies or music from rapidshare is legal in Switzerland? I was told that uploading is illegal (as everywhere in the world) but downloading is legal here.
Cheers

Re: Rapidshare

Downloading most software is illegal. Downloading music is probably legal in your case. This is because when using Rapidshare, you are not uploading while you are downloading.

Re: Rapidshare

I've also heart that downloading is ok in Switzerland. I have Rapidshare account and I've been downloading many TV series so far
