View Full Version : Basic Trading/Sharing Question

2010-02-26, 11:02 AM
I'm somewhat new the whole torrent sharing and trading and have a question.

Is it kosher, agreeable to trading ethics, to take a torrent posted on another site and make it available here? Should you contact the person that originally posted it and get permission first, or can you just upload it at will in the spirit of sharing?

Give credits to the original taper/uploader, donīt change the files and donīt remaster. If there is a note in the original textfile that the uploader asks to contact him before uploading elsewhere, do so. Donīt spread it on MP3-blogs, donīt spread the files in that format ever. And wait a few days until a good bunch of people have grabbed and seeded it over here and may help you seeding elsewhere.

Excellent. That's exactly the kind of info I was looking for. Thank you for responding so quickly.
