How to Torrent - Revisited

We got a lot of comments after yesterday's piece on torrenting.

I'm excited that so many thoughtful people are listening to our show.

I just want to make it clear that I DO NOT advocate pirating copyrighted content. I do, however, support the exchange of information via open source technology, which is what bit torrent was built for. Torrenting itself isn't illegal.

Illegal file sharing is a huge problem in this country. In fact, the Supreme Court may take their first RIAA file-sharing case soon.

We'll be keeping our eye on the case.

Thanks for listening!
