As of 2014, downloading a movie from websites such as Watch 32 is illegal in the United States, since the site violates distribution rights. As an alternative to illegally downloading content such as movies, the Center for Copyright Information provides links to its partner service providers authorized to provide access to this media. The exact method to download or access this media depends on the service provider you select.
Watch 32 hosts illegal movies on its website. It became popular in Utah after it showcased an unauthorized copy of the movie "Frozen" during the time the movie was in movie theaters. Watch 32 is breaking copyright laws and others laws. When users go to the site, they run the risk of facing fines and legal action. If users take part in watching illegal movies or downloading this type of content, they might get a warning letter from their Internet service providers. If a user continues to engage in this activity, his Internet service provider may stop providing him with service.
Watch 32 has faced court cases for its actions, such as the case that arose in Britain for violating copyright laws. Although Watch 32 lost the case in British courts, its server location in Germany makes it challenging to block the site from use in the United States.
