While downlods might slow down, your bandwidth usage will go up since you're traffiking everyone elses packets around. So if you're on comcast (or any other ISP with bandwith usage caps of some kind) you'll likely use up your 250gb limit pretty DAMN quick. So.. seems pointless to me.

really wow.... so instead of getting sue for something i downloaded I can get sued a dozen times for what other people download...

 

 

supposedly it ****s with the tor network some but why not just run bt over tor?

as long as you just grab one part of the file and then switch to a new link each time it might work but other wise its just a lot of excuses for who ever to subpoena for more than just one person

This is like using powerful antibacterial soap to wash your hands before a meal...but then using somebody else's hands to eat with

Then the last leg of the download trip is through your own ISP who will of course have a record of it. We also know of download caps and deep packet inspection (DPI), so really in the end you're still traceable and there ARE records regardless.

I think the idea is that if you are all in it together, nobody can track anything that any of you could be downloading.  I don't think I want to be in any part of this.

Not to mention that the other person may be downloading something much worse than movies and music. Anyone remember the guy running tor that had his door busted in for child porn. He then had to explain to a judge what the hell tor is, and wheather or not that worked idk, I have not heard a conclusion.
