    But surely that illegal.

    I can't possibly condone such behaviour.

    Admin, can you shut/delete this thread immediately please?




    just hang on until I make a note of the URL though first... :angry:

    depends, bit torrent is a grey area, if you could not get hold of the footage any other way then its unlikely there'll be a problem with it,

    using it to avoid paying for films etc is wrong, immoral and illegal

    using it instead of a video recorder to get something off the tv, well i could get my computer to record from the tv if i popped a tv card in it. at the moment i've not done so, and until bbc i player emerged, i did watch doctor who via torrents.

    The bit I like about piratebay is that it's based in Sweden, where copyright laws are very lax. Go to the home page and look up the letters the site owner writes to the likes of Microsoft and Apple. Very abusive, he basically tells them to F off! :biggrin:

    I'd be very afraid about downloading that. You'll have hollywood, the studios and their fat lawyers after you.

    They're looking for some showcase cyclist scalps at the moment.

    I got pretty good speeds for Bittorrent, took just over 80 minutes to download. Now I have to seed for an age though to give the love back to other leechers.
