The developers of the BitTorrent protocol would like to distance themselves from the whole internet piracy debate, pointing out that you need clients, hosts, search engines and a whole lot more to actual steal media off the internet. So stop saying "BitTorrenting" when you actually mean "stealing" if you would.
In a post explaining the basics of the BitTorrent world, the format backer said: "The idea of a 'BitTorrent Piracy Record' is a complete fabrication. Because there’s actually no such thing as a 'BitTorrent piracy record'. Because piracy happens outside the BitTorrent ecosystem."
They added: "We don’t host infringing content. We don’t point to it. It’s literally impossible to 'illegally download something on BitTorrent.' To pirate stuff, you need more than a protocol. You need search, a pirate content site, and a content manager. We offer none of those things. If you’re using BitTorrent for piracy, you’re doing it wrong."
