    Not legal. To any of the above, Well unless you paid for the those movies or music, on a program like iTunes, then you can download them. but other than that No.

    In Canada, music is legal to download... just not upload. This only applies to 'sound recordings' so videos/software is a no go.

    How does that work? Everyone pays a million dollars extra for blank media. 1 DVD-R = $5.00. But seriously, we pay a little bit more because of it... usually pennies more PER disc (which adds up).
