Search : Next Frontier For BitTorrent
(Via Wired) BitTorrent speeds internet file transfers by shifting the bandwidth burden off the publisher, and distributing it among users downloading the file: Everyone downloading a file over BitTorrent is unobtrusively uploading it to other users at the same time so that large, popular files actually move at a faster rate than obscure ones. BitTorrent is in the final stage of launching an advertising-supported search engine dedicated to cataloging and indexing the thousands of movies, music tracks, software programs and other files for download over the popular BitTorrent protocol. The free search tool will be the first large-scale commercial offering from BitTorrent, that so far has drawn most of its revenue from T-shirt sales and PayPal donations. Although BitTorrent has become associated with online piracy thanks to its role in distributing copyright movies and television shows, the company is eager to highlight its utility as a completely lawful program for furthering free speech.
