BitTorrent video files from the tsunami

The P2P file distribution tool BitTorrent has been under serious attack during the last month from the digital rights movement, but the method can also be used in less dubious ways than sharing illegal copies of music, film or games. For example sharing video footage of the tsunami disaster. The web site Waves of destruction collects photos and videos from the catastrophe and many video files are distributed in BitTorrent format. The site has had thousands of BitTorrent users the last days.
