Bit torrent, a peer-to-peer application

This presentation differentiates between client-server applications and peer-to-peer applications. We use Bit Torrent as an example of a peer-to-peer application, and show how to use it to find and download files. We also discuss legitimate and illegitimate uses of Bit Torrent, copyright and Creative Commons.
