That is FUD spread by the music and film industry. If the torrent is created
by someone you trust (in this case TDF), even if the data is spread through
the computers of many users (that is the principle of peer to peer or p2p)
you don't trust, they can ONLY send the data that was originally on the
torrent created by TDF.
Torrents are a way to distribute data in a reliable way (data is checked
against the original string) but it has the fantastic advantage that it
doesn't rely on the ability of a single server. Everyone who has
successfully completed the download is then a source for others to complete
The fact that the torrent method is used to transmit illegal and copyrighted
material is a consequence of the success of the method.
Blessed are the peacemakers...for they shall be shot at from both sides.
