Torrents themselves are not illegal. A torrent is a means to share a file. File sharing is not...repeat NOT in itself illegal. This is a widely spread and common mistaken belief. It all depends on what kinda files you are sharing. If you are sharing commercially protected software or copyrighted movies, then yes, it would be considered illegal. If you share software that is open source, shareware or free ware...ior movies that are public domain or files and documents that you created or use, then there is nothing illegal about it. But sharing of files either through torrents or peer to peer is not in itself illegal.
