IANAL

Shorthand for I Am Not A Lawyer, IANAL is often used in text-based communications to denote that the legal advice offered by a certain party may be incorrect as they don't have a law degree. Below is an example of how this could be used in chat.

User1: Could I get in trouble if I download this?
