Hi: there is a huge amount of buddhist stuff on piratebay and avaxhome and other places, and most of them can be downloaded by using Utorrent.
maybe if we find how to share the"how to use torrent" among all members here, it could be a great benefit for those"always searching buddhist people".
movies  and complete collection of books, audiobooks and more can be easily found.
saludos!!

question.....Is downloading things via utorrent safe?

I have heard that there can be some malicious hackers and code that can be downloaded easily using utorrent.

When you search or download from such sites, you do so at your peril, not only when it comes to the legalities involved, but also the potential of downloading malicious code to your computer.

The Pirate Bay (commonly abbreviated TPB) is a website that provides torrent files and magnet links to facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol. It was founded in Sweden in 2003.

In 2009, the website’s founders were put on trial in Sweden, charged with facilitating illegal downloading of copyrighted material. They were found guilty by the court and sentenced to a year in prison with a fine of 30 million SEK (€2.7M or US$3.5M as of 2009). In some countries, ISPs have been ordered to block access to the website. Since then, proxies have been made all around the world providing access to The Pirate Bay.

I purchase those books so the money goes to the organization supporting Tibet.

Also there's an issue related to the precepts, namely the second precept.
