Torrenting is something that has faced a severe crackdown by law enforcement authorities and for good reason. Piracy is after all a crime.
However, not all torrents are bad and as much as they’re used to distribute pirated software, they’re also a great way to share files. In this article, we’re going over the top 10 torrent sites out there.
Several files available on these Torrent websites might be the intellectual property of an individual, company or organisation, and downloading them as such can result in a copyright violation. Candid.Technology condemns piracy in any form. Using Torrents might also be illegal in your country. We do not endorse using them and it is recommend that you abide by your local laws. Media downloaded from Torrents must only be used for non-commercial purposes such as academic presentations, lectures or as a reference with full credits given to the original source in your preferred format. You can also use the media files with permission from the owner.
