One thing I have been thinking about lately is making several torrents of legal material that everyone can benefit from, such as one full of free games, and public domain music, movies, and books. Even include free programs like libre office.
I know the program part of it could be an issue since these things can become out of date or get updated, but what are everyone else's thoughts on such a torrent?
this is a hobby thing I am doing in my free time (which I have very little time for at the moment) so in the meantime I'll just be making a list of what things to put in such a torrent before I actually make it.
Current list of what to include:
OpenOffice? or LibreOffice? From my research it looks like these are sister programs but libre has continued to have support and is the most relevent one.
Maybe an open source operating system or two?
Link to Jamendo: Creative Commons music (possibly include a few gigs of music from their as sample)
Link to Project Gutenberg: Public Domain books including 'the classics' and always adding more. (include some classic lit in the torrent)
movies or video
I dont know enough about creative commons or public domain videos to comment on this yet.
There are plenty of really old games I am sure are public domain now, and many free games released at the moment, I can throw a few in there but I am still debating putting emulators into it, since even if the emulator is open source and free, roms are not.
