is streaming illegal in Germany? (Munich)

Hello dear expats,

I want to have a more clear idea about what is legal and what is not when you surf online here in Germany.
Most of all, as an expats, that misses some interesting movies and programs from his native country...i would like to know if it is forbidden to watch online movies on Italian streaming sites.

I am aware that downloading, as in many other countries, may be forbidden due to the copyright, but what about just watching movies online? Did anyone get any fine for it? How does it work here?

I did not find much about this topic online.

thank you
