Torrent sites actually have a pretty good wall to hide behind, legally. They don't make the original poster of the file anonymous, like other free filesharing communities. And a lot of torrent sites require you find the download via search engine. It might be backwards logic, but they ultimately set it up so that if there's a big deal over copyright infringement, the community as a whole isn't held responsible, it's the guy who uploaded the offense in the first place.

You can delete this posts if you want, I'm not trying to turn this into a torrent argument thread :|

Read the forum rules 8)

Talk of torrent use is fine but talking about obtaining software illegally etc is a no no. Doesn't matter if 'most people do it' or whatever, it could get the site in trouble ;)

Legal issues

Main article: legality of BitTorrent

BitTorrent trackers have been subjected to raids and shutdowns due to claims of copyright infringement. BitTorrent metafiles do not store copyrighted data, so it has been claimed that BitTorrent trackers, which only store and track the metafiles and usually do not share any potentially copyrighted data, must therefore be legal.[11] Despite this claim, there has been tremendous legal pressure, usually on behalf of the MPAA and RIAA, to shut down numerous BitTorrent trackers.

Various jurisdictions have pursued legal action against websites which host BitTorrent trackers. High-profile examples include the closing of Suprnova.org, LokiTorrent and EliteTorrents.org. The Pirate Bay torrent website, formed by a Swedish anti-copyright group, is notorious for the "legal" section[11] of its website in which letters and replies on the subject of alleged copyright infringements are publicly displayed. On May 31, 2006, The Pirate Bay's servers in Sweden were raided by Swedish police on allegations by the MPAA of copyright infringement.[12]

HBO, in an effort to combat the distribution of its programming on BitTorrent networks, has sent cease and desist letters to the Internet Service Providers of BitTorrent users. Many users have reported receiving letters from their ISPs that threatened to cut off their internet service if the alleged infringement continues[13]. HBO, unlike the RIAA, has not been reported to have filed suit against anyone for sharing files as of April 2007. On the other hand, in 2005 HBO began "poisoning" torrents of its show Rome, by providing bad chunks of data to clients. [14]

On November 23, 2005, the movie industry and BitTorrent Inc. CEO Bram Cohen, signed a deal they hoped would reduce the number of unlicensed copies available through bittorrent.com's search engine, run by BitTorrent, Inc. It meant BitTorrent.com had to remove any links to unlicensed copies of films made by seven of Hollywood's major movie studios.

There are two major differences between BitTorrent and many other peer-to-peer file-trading systems, which advocates suggest make it less useful to those sharing copyrighted material without authorization. First, BitTorrent itself does not offer a search facility to find files by name. A user must find the initial torrent file by other means, such as a web search. Second, BitTorrent makes no attempt to conceal the host ultimately responsible for facilitating the sharing: a person who wishes to make a file available must run a tracker on a specific host or hosts and distribute the tracker address(es) in the .torrent file. Because it is possible to operate a tracker on a server that is located in a jurisdiction where the copyright holder cannot take legal action, the protocol does offer some vulnerability that other protocols lack. It is far easier to request that the server's ISP shut down the site than it is to find and identify every user sharing a file on a peer-to-peer network. However, with the use of a distributed hash table (DHT), trackers are no longer required, though often used for client software that does not support DHT to connect to the stream.
Sure it's legal...if you've created the program or file that you are sharing...
