Seriously, pirate bay is just a search engine for torrents. You don't download anything from it.
Broadly speaking, anything you would be expected to pay for is illegal to download.
This includes movies, music, and programs. There are exceptions, such as video and music distributed for free, open source software and "shareware"
BT distributes the load, meaning you are uploading while you download.
Therefore, if you are illegally downloading a file, you are also guilty of distributing an illegal file.
And, it's fairly easy to get caught at it---and expensive when you do.
BT's are a great tool, when used legally, but the vast majority aren't.
