    Another interesting application of legal P2P via BitTorrent is http://www.legaltorrents.com/. Legal Torrents is geared towards media (music/books/movies) but provides some interesting collateral for claims made by various industry associations that P2P is solely the breeding grounds of pirated property.

    Prof. Lessig, thanks for linking to the Grokster briefs torrent and my site (I’m taking a screenshot, which I will attempt to use for extra credit when I take “Computers and the Law” next year). Since Saturday, over 170 people have downloaded the Grokster briefs, which adds up to over 378,387 pages of court documents downloaded over the weekend (yes, I counted them).
