Definitions for "BitTorrent "
BitTorrent is a tool for copying files from one machine to another. FTP punishes sites for being popular. Since all uploading is done from one place, a popular site needs big iron and big bandwidth. With BitTorrent, clients automatically mirror files they download, making the publisher's burden almost nothing.
BitTorrent is a tool for distributed download. Go to for the latest version, or;O=D for source and older versions.
A P2P file distribution protocol where people downloading the file then upload to other members of a cloud of people interested in receiving the file, spreading around the distribution cost. Also a company created to commercially exploit the technology. In the interests of full disclosure, note that I am a Director of BitTorrent, Inc.
