    They basically have been legit for some time now, just like Vuze. It remains to be seen how it'll turn out since every time a legitimate service that isn't iTunes comes on the scene, either the prices and/or conditions of service turn what could be a massive influx of people with wallets off.

    This is interesting, although BitTorrent has already aligned with many aspects of the music and media industry. However, many use the cleint mainly for file sharing.

    I doubt this whole thing will take off. Just with the freely available options out there, BitTorrent already has quite the competition. Factor in the "paid" competitions, then BitTorrent seriously has a tough mountain to climb.

    That makes sense. BitTorrent is mainly a P2P application.

    TorrentFreak is probably the best place on the Web for p2p news.

    One of the odd things with TPB of late, is that they are pushing an in-Browser p2p client. uTorrent 2.2.1 suits most that I know that p2p.
