Well That torrent is the most popular way of file sharing .. As large file can be shared the utterly the most easiest way.. Positive besides that there are legal way to use it as an content delivery platform. example:Blizzard entertainment choose to use torrent to deliver their game expansion pack. Negative: Recently ISP,start to clock torrent because is so popular that their whole network is struggle to crawl to meet the demands of user downloading content off the network. Sign My,Torrent is seems slower recently.. Note: Hope there is more development going on with torrent to bypass the current situation.

It is true... these days you can download anything from the net, ebooks, movies, songs, softwares. Some do download, then buy the original of their favorite stuff. Pro would be its saves a lot of money, especially for those who have limited. Con would be we are not really giving credit to the people who are really responsible for these stuff. Btw.. torrent slows down my computer. I deleted it. I now download without any software. via sharing forums.

maybe they can't stop file sharing on the net, because a lot of us are using it, even the cyber police they can't stop it. anyway this is good because we learn how to share things on the net.

I feel torrents have helped us cut down costs in these times of recession. Now a days we have broadbands at home, it is very easy to download good stuffs in no time. As long as the intention is good and you feel that the quality of the downloaded material is good, then what's stopping you?? I feel its definitely a good sign. It saves time too.

Thanks for commenting. If goods are not purchased, will it not be a loss for the manufacturer? Then what about selling and doing bussiness if everything is for free and downloaded. Please clarify my doubt.

Well torrent is widely used now a days. in Pros of course you can get mostly every software,games, movies absolutely freely.. useful if you use for good purpose. and cons it consume high bandwidth. open ports anonymously so security wise it's not suggested to use torrent if you are running servers on your system.. for home use it's alright. not much risks..

Hey, I think that these torrent sites/programs help us save money and time. But the cons include that they are illegal and are at risk of getting fined or life in prison, as well as we are risking our computers with viruses. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!
