    The country where I live forbids the BT upload, So I don't want to be fined for copyright problem.

    So I want to know that
    if I download a file from HTTP(S)/FTP server, does the file will be uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm?

    I am not so good at English and I find the sentence from the aria2 description here
    http://aria2.sourceforge.net/manual/en/html/aria2c.html#synopsis

    The sentence "It supports downloading a file from HTTP(S)/FTP and BitTorrent at the same time, while the data downloaded from HTTP(S)/FTP is uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm." confused me.

    One more question, if the file will be uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm, how to forbid that?
