John Edwards, a democratic presidential candidate in 2004 is using BitTorrent to distribute his campaign media. He’s hosting his torrent files at MoveDigital, a company that basically sells bandwidth and uses bittorrent to distribute files once they’re nicely seeded. Here’s a piece from their FAQ:
Unlike other services, MoveDigital only deducts bandwidth from your account after the entire direct download is completed. If a direct download is stopped before completion, no bandwidth is deducted. For P2P traffic generated by MoveDigital on your behalf and for mobile streams, bandwidth is deducted on a per-byte transferred basis.
