There are many folks on the web that us it to download everything from documents to pirated movies. One technology that allows you to do this is called BitTorrent. You may be asking, what the hell is BitTorrent? In a nutshell, BitTorrent is a file sharing protocol used for distributing large amounts of data peer-to-peer. It's a process that gathers bits of the entire file across the Internet then re assembles it back on your hard drive when you download.

If you are downloading items that people have given consent for, then stop reading and go have a latte. But if you are one the those folks who love to download music and brand spanking new Hollywood movie titles, then you might have a problem, so keep reading.
