Shutting down illegal torrents, as easy as I think? Increase the number of peers.
Torrent is based on the concept of "sharing", one person gives other receives. If the giver (seeders) are more than receiver (peers) then the torrent is good.
But what If we increase the number of receivers (peers), making them greater than the number of seeders.
How can we do this - setting up servers around the world that continually keep downloading the torrent. Unfortunately, I am not an software engineer and thus looking for an answer here.
And I am also aware, this is ironic because its kind of supporting piracy by downloading the illegal content by using servers to shut down piracy. But, I am not sure what are the regulations if the servers are given the right to download from the original owner.
Hope, I did not make it complicated.
