Legality of downloading 10.1 offical

I dont understand the legal issues of downloading the offical version of Mandrake 10.1. Given that it is the offical version, are you not supposed to buy it of Mandrakeclub or be a member or something instead of just downloading it?

I am not a member of mandrake club, so can I download it?

Can this be clarified please?

Yes you can download it. If you are a member of the Mandrivaclub, you get access to any releases before they are made public and other extras.
