my son wants to down load and so far due to the legality of it I have said no. Now yesterday he came home from college and said his tutor has told all the class that bittorrent is not illegal?? which i find hard to believe and even harder to believe she would give out information like this, please can someone clrify what is legal and what isn't. Thanks in advance
I'm not sure that Bittorrent itself is illegal, but my understanding is that it is/can be used for illegally downloading pirated software, much the same as UTorrent & Azureus. Someone might correct me however.
Limewire or torrent sites are not illegal, but how you use them is. When you download you also upload automatically, i think this is where the law changes. If you use such programmes then your computer will never be safe or work properley. This computer i am on never will go to such sites or download such material. Sooner or later the computer will be so slow or stop because of all the spyware, trojans & malware. i think that soon that all ISP's will be monitoring your downloads and stopping such illegal internet activites.
