BitTorrent Hits Back

BitTorrent Hits Back

BitTorrent has dismissed accusations of piracy.

The file-sharing firm's customers share large amounts of data with each other.

Despite the fact that Torrent files are frequently used to download pirated movies, games and music, the company responsible for the technology insists its aim is to promote legal material.

BitTorrent vice-president of marketing, Matt Mason, said: "We don't host infringing content. We don't point to it.

"It is literally impossible to illegally download something on BitTorrent.

"To pirate stuff, you need more than a protocol. You need search, a pirate content site and a content manager. We offer none of those things.

"If you are using BitTorrent for piracy, you are doing it wrong."
