said by desarollo:Sorry your son doesn't need to "seed" anything. Very few "legit" uses of torrents. yes there are SOME so don't go saying I said all torrents are illegal. said by cork1958:
I have NEVER used any torrents and I think that is one of the slowest and dumbest ways to get anything any how, so monitor away!!
Ever play World of Warcraft? They use it for upgrade distribution, and it's a legitimate useful protocol for distributing huge amounts of data around the world.
When my son upgraded his copy, his 12G download saturated Charter's 100M service. For well seeded sources like Wow, it works like a champ.
Charter is going to fall all over themselves as they step on very legal and legitimate users of torrents. They, like you, view the use as nothing but copyright infringement and that is very far from the truth. While I don't agree with stealing content, this is just another step in service agnostic internet access slowly being constrained into what corporations will permit us to enjoy.
