Sutta Pitaka - FULL, ENGLISH?

I just came across this site: http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/1552 ... ab=summary

Do you think it's safe to download this stuff?

IsoHunt is a fairly decent bittorrent site, actually. I'm trying to download it now, in fact, so I'll let you know. As of now, there are two peers sharing at 100% with an estimated timeline of just over a day to complete.

I can confirm that the full Anguttara and a little over half of the Khuddaka* are part of the file, but I have no idea who has translated it.

1. Khuddakapatha
2. Dhammapada
3. Udana
4. Itivuttaka
5. Suttanipata
6. Vimanavatthu
7. Petavatthu

8. Theragatha
9. Therigatha
10. Jataka
11. Niddesa
12. Patisambhidamagga
13. Apadana
14. Buddhavamsa
15. Cariyapitaka

16. Nettipakarana or Netti (included in Burmese and Sinhalese editions, but not in Thai edition)
17. Petakopadesa (included in Burmese and Sinhalese editions, but not in Thai edition)
18. Milindapanha (included in Burmese edition, but not in Sinhalese and Thai editions)

I'm pretty sure the Anguttara (which I set to download first) is:

The Book of the Gradual Sayings, 5 volumes: Vol. I (1932, 1989, 1995), Vol. II (1933, 1992, 1995), tr. F.L. Woodward; Vol. III (1934, 1988, 1995), Vol. IV (1935, 1989, 1995), tr. E.M. Hare; Vol. V (1936, 1994), tr. F.L. Woodward, Pali Text Society, Oxford, England
Translation of A.nguttara-nikaaya.

So this torrent is a collection of the entire PTS Sutta Pitaka, it would seem - mostly. Anguttara 4 was missing, alas, contrary to what I first thought.

I just got though downloading it all; not many people seeding so it took a couple days. The DN, MN, and SN are all scans Bodhi's books (sans introductory sections). I don't have a problem with having downloaded these personally these since I've already purchased the actual books, but I'm doubtful about the legality of distributing these. I would be glad to keep seeding the torrent if these are okay to distribute. Unless anyone can confirm this is okay, I am going to stop seeding for now.

I really doubt that it is.

It is not something I would do.
