BitTorrent launches SoShare service, allows 1TB transfers for free BitTorrent Inc. has released their new file sharing service SoShare in beta.
What makes SoShare different from rivals is the fact that users can send extremely large files for free, without having to use multiple links or multiple data transfers.

Using the BitTorrent browser plug-in, users can send files up to 1TB large in a single data transfer.

Making the transfer even easier, is the fact that recipients will not even need a registered account to accept files.

All files remain active for 30 days, or less time if you choose so.

This might be old news.Sorry


The operator of an Italian file sharing website has been filed 6.4 million, or about $8.5 million.

ItalianShare had about 300,000 users and reportedly had 30,000 links to copyrighted material available through file lockets, BitTorrent and eD2K. The site operator, identified only as PG, was arrested in July last year on charged of copyright violations, tax fraud and others.

Italian authorities said that the defendant made 580,000 from advertisements and donations to the site.

He has been fined 6.4 million euros by the Salermo provincial judicial authority, after a case was brought against him by the Finance Guard's local office in Agropoli, which is responsible for investigating cybercrime, financial crime, smuggling, Intellectual property infringement and more.
