Bit Torrent is not purely piracy

BitTorrent Inc., the company behind the popular file-sharing clients uTorrent and BitTorrent, is distancing itself from online piracy. BitTorrent Inc. emphasizes that their software has a wide range of legal uses and that the company doesn’t support those who use their tools to pirate. “We do not endorse piracy. We do not encourage it. We don’t point to piracy sites,” BitTorrent CEO Eric Klinker says. They have put together a site that explains what BitTorrent can do to archive, share and reduce congestion on the Internet for Creative Commons materials, media out of copyright and even stuff that is copyrighted that artists themselves wish to share this way.
