What are torrent sites?

A torrent site is a website on the internet where visitors can upload, share, and download files. Whilst some torrent sites are legal, others are illegal due to the sharing of copyrighted material such as books, music, and movies. A torrent site allows users to download pieces of a particular file from other users, known as seeders, until the complete file is downloaded.
