    Once had my door battered down in the middle of the night by riot police for watching a football stream. Thankfully, I had a really good lawyer who managed to get my prison sentenced reduced to 15 years.

    Don't do it bro unless you like the taste of prison food.

    Well, they're both video streaming sites. That's where the comparison ends. YouTube will not allow a lot of content. Porn and some copyrighted material, with the intention of profiting from it. Dailymotion seems to allow certain uploads that YouTube wouldn't. You only want to watch TV shows. They're fine to view. Nobody cares.

    Not entirely sure, but I've got a feeling that it's ok to watch 'pirated' content hosted in other places, but you cannot host or download it yourself.

    I wouldn't trust Yahoo answers at all... seriously you won't get fined - especially not on Dailymotion.

    Do you know millions of people watch/stream/download stuff illegally everyday, the police will not arrest you because then they will have to arrest half the worlds population. But just in-case don't download films just stream them

    No, they only go after the people who upload pirated content.

    Even if you get caught downloading pirated material (small chance) you get like 3 warnings first before they do anything.
