An Ethical Question...

hey all -
what is the proper procedure when you grab a torrent from one site -
and upload it to another?

I am asking because I am guilty on both ends -
I have had it happen to me -
and I have done it to others -
where you spend all this time creating and authoring a DVD -
and then see it appear on another site -
with or without credit -
whatever it doesn't matter -
you are both honored and violated at the same time -

is it good karma? -
is it unkind and morally wrong? -
or -
is it merely "sharing the groove" -
was wondering how others felt -
both creators and ones who have done it ...

Re: An Ethical Question...

I think it is fine to do so, if you give credit to the author. The original point of them uploading it was to spread it to other people, and uploading it to another site would be doing that.

But you might want to ask the author if they are OK with it if you think there is any chance they might object.

Then again, im not sure if tapers have some special rule on that that I dont know of.

Imagine, Americans. An Empire did everything we are trying to do already, mostly better than us, because they actually had a CULTURE to offer the world, beyond Ronald McDonald.

Re: An Ethical Question...

I generally try to contact the originator, or as close as I can get, to see how they feel about it. That takes a lot more time, but it's certainly the more civil thing to do..

that said - if you post it on the internet, it's fair game.

Re: An Ethical Question...

wait for the original seed to finish is best (no more activity)

ppl don't usually get upset about somebody else reseeding somewhere else/same site unless the info and/or files have been screwed-up in some way.

Modern social theory casts a highly skeptical eye on any declaration that a group of persons is without conflict, and insists, on the contrary, that conflict is natural to groups, and even more, is essential to them. -Patrick Henry
