Why are torrents prohibited





logicfail182
A few weeks ago, I used a public torrent to share my personal video of a play I was in. All the music was created by the director, and I had permission to share the video. I also know a guy who has shared his tweaked ubuntu release me and others via torrent.

Why can't we share legal torrent files?

For a number of reasons. Not the least of which is that we have no way of knowing if the files are legal or not. That combined with the fact that the Owner of Frihost doesn't want them is more than enough reason. This is still a FREE host after all.

so it's prohibited because bondings says so. ok, but if I have a copyrighted image/video, there's no immediate way of knowing either

Good point, but for the most part Torrents are mostly used for pirating or other illegal activites. They attract too much attention.

Torrents do have their good side, for instance with free software like the fedora project. Sometimes their mirrors are extremely slow, and a Torrent is gonna be alot faster to download via at times.

Bottom line is that torrents are not allowed here. there are many other hosts in the world that do allow them however, and I am going to close this thread before people start posting links to them.
