While I’m not a fan of using BitTorrent and doing torrent downloading illegally, I am a fan of how the technology can be used legally. Sourcing bits and pieces of a huge file from tens of thousands of people, speeding it up for me and reducing bandwith costs for those who share? Yes, please; sign me up for that. Fortunately, torrenting is perfectly legal, if you’re torrenting legal material. If you’re a fan of the Internet Archive and its millions of free and legal movies, concert recordings, television, radio programs, and the like, then I have good news for you. The Internet Archive is adding over 1 million torrent files to their website.
Check it out yourself. As new files are uploaded, they’ll get torrent options, I imagine more popular older files also have torrenting options as well. While it’s a weird collection of stuff, it’s still got some interesting content within the archives and it’s definitely worth checking out because if you don’t like it, you haven’t spent any money.Technorati Tags: archive.org, bittorrent, bittorrent files added to internet archive, books, internet archive, internet archive adds torrent files, media, movies, music, public domain content, television, torrenting
