I own a hammer. It is legal. If I use it to hit you over the head, the action is not legal. The hammer did not commit the crime, either...the user (me) did. Should hammers be illegal because someone hit you over the head with it?

most countries provide that if you download a file, and then try to use it for a commercial purpose (like making 500 copies) then you might suffer criminal proceedings, but mostly by downloading you just open yourself up to a civil action for payment - just like someone suing you for debt.
unless you do it commercially, you don't risk prison.
