Are Full Movies on Megashare Legal?

Streaming full movies on sites such as Megashare is legal in most cases, according to Business Insider, but it is illegal to download any part of the movie, often called “pseudo-streaming,” or to show the movie to a large audience outside the home. Both procedures violate basic copyright laws.

Megashare is a video streaming portal where users can watch full shows and movies online for free, according to the company website. To avoid legal trouble, streaming services such as Megashare embed movies and shows from other video streaming sites, so material isn’t directly on the streaming website, explain Business Insider. The smaller, secondary sites often violate copyright laws, while the larger “search engine” type of sites remain legal. While watching it is legal in most cases, uploading material to it is not.
