Bittorent has changed the way people share files across the internet. Before Bittorent technology shot up to fame, files were transferred through other P2P technology most notably Kazaa and Morpheus.
“BitTorrent is a method of distributing large amounts of data widely without the original distributor incurring the whole of the corresponding costs of hardware, hosting and bandwidth resources. Instead of the distributor alone servicing each recipient, under BitTorrent the recipients each also supply data to newer recipients, thus significantly reducing the cost and burden on any given individual source as well as providing redundancy against system problems, and reducing dependence upon the original distributor.” – Wikipedia
Being that said, an initial uploader only shoulder the “birthing pains” of a seed. Once it gains momentum, the community will do the rest. Now for us leechers, having the “community support” for a file is great. It means you don’t have to seed no more because others will be pulling the slack. However, the practice puts the file in serious jeopardy because the sources will be cut off.
This scenario brought life to private trackers. Communities of like-minded file-sharers who banded together to make sure a file is supported. Most of these sites are password protected and by invitation only.
