The Internet Archive Now Offers Torrent Downloads

This is huge:

The Internet Archive is now offering over 1,000,000 torrents including our live music concerts, the Prelinger movie collection, the librivox audio book collectionfeature filmsold time radiolots and lots of books, and all new uploads from our patrons intoCommunitycollections (with more to follow).

All of that content was previously available for legal download via traditional channels, but turning to the BitTorrent protocol helps the Internet Archive save on bandwidth and legitimize a technology tool media companies believe is nothing more than a mechanism for piracy.
