Virtually anything you get from peer-to-peer (P2P) programs will be illegal. Music, movies, TV shows, software... Unless you paid for them, from a place such as Apple's iTunes store, it's illegal in the western world (US, Europe, Australia).

There are exceptions, but that will serve you pretty well as a rule of thumb. If you get caught, as a minor in the US, your parents would then be liable for the damages. So it's probably best to stay away from P2P programs in general for that reason alone. Not to mention all the nasty little programs that tend to get bundled with them that mess up your computer.
