It's important to recognize the difference between content from the Vuze HD Network ( and content downloaded from other sites using the Vuze application (for example, by opening a torrent file from another site in a web browser) -- in other words, to understand the distinction between content downloaded from Vuze and content downloaded with Vuze (or using Vuze).

For the content available from Vuze, Vuze has strict copyright protection policies in place, and we work hard to ensure that all content there is available with the permission of the copyright owners. 

Content from the Vuze HD Network is the content that is displayed when you have Vuze HD Network selected in the left navigation pane. You can determine whether content in your Library that you have downloaded came from the Vuze HD Network or not by looking in the "From" column. Only content from the Vuze HD Network will have a blue frog displayed in that column. Content from other sites will have other icons in that column (for example, a round globe icon).
