Will I get in legal trouble?

I have MMD (MikuMikuDance) which is a 3D modeling program thing based on Vocaloid, (even though there are, like, millions of anime and video game character models for it. xD)
I have a bunch of Windows100% models, which you have to pay for, and I downloaded them off of 4Shared for free...I've heard about people in the MMD community getting completely shunned and hated because of using un-paid-for models..
I'm just curious if I could get in serious trouble for having them.. I don't have very many videos on Youtube yet, but I plan on putting up a bunch more, and want to know...

Probably if you put it on youtube. It Says in 4shared.com. In the copyright policy.
