Between independent films, certain documentaries or free software, it is not always easy to know if a particular file French torrent is legal or not.

Of course when it comes to a blockbuster caught on Cpasbien, pw or, doubt is not allowed, but if you ask for example if you can calmly download Steak this Film (a documentary on the property intellectual) then how to find out?

Well to answer it, there is TorrentTags, a site which simply asks you for the hash or the .torrent and which will dig into the bases of its own listing provided by the rights holders to tell you if such or such torrent is "legal". ".

To do this, go to ! Place the .torrent file or paste the identification hash and click Submit. If you see a small green dot, the download is legal!


After a test that I have done on several torrent files, I can say that TorrentTags still needs to prove itself in terms of usefulness and reliability. But the principle is interesting, because, if it works, TorrentTags could ultimately be an incredible resource to protect BitTorrent users.
