How Open Media Network differs from BitTorrent, etc.
One more thing not mentioned in my last post: material distributed (for free!) on Open Media Network is authorized for public use by the producers. Open Media Network recommends that distributed material be licensed under one of the Creative Commons licences.
With BitTorrent, there is a mixture of legal material (e.g., Linux CDROM images, music distributed by music groups, etc.) and material under copyright that prohibits free distribution.
