Torrents were the single most popular medium of sharing movies, TV shows, or any other form of entertainment, including music before Netflix and all other streaming services, came into the picture. For many years, before the internet became a household thing, movies and TV shows were distributed on DVDs, VCDs, or VCR tapes. When the age of computers came in, burning the content of these DVDs and VCRs on some other storage devices became easy and gave rise to piracy. But since the beginning of the internet, piracy has become a widespread phenomenon, and the most crucial role played in the rise of piracy was by torrent websites.
Torrents made it easier for people to share movies and shows or any copyrighted content without hosting it on any central server, which can be taken down quickly. How torrents work is that unlike most of the internet, where files are stored on a central server, and others can access the file from that server of the website, torrent uses peer to peer network. A BitTorrent client is used to download the files, and a group of computers downloading the same file is called a swarm. The data of the file is exchanged within the computers in a swarm eliminating the need to use any central server to download data. This made torrents popular amongst the internet users looking to download movies, shows, videos, books, games, or any other content.
But since the content was free and readily available, it led to enormous losses for the production houses. The authorities also took note of the lobbying by these big producers and decided to crack down on the websites distributing these torrent files to the people. Kickasstorrent was one of the most popular websites used for this purpose. It was taken down by the authorities in many countries, and the people responsible for its operation were punished. To get out of the legal problems Kickass Torrents decided to start providing licensed torrent files of movies and other entertainment content to those who are wishing to pay for them. That is why the registration process for Kickass Torrents was introduced to make it a seamless experience of buying and downloading content from the website.
