Yes they do, they are an encrypted version of the original file. The
encryption key is the same size as the chunk, and the algorithm is

Rabid dogs have more self-control than "intellectual property"
lawyers, how can you say there isn't even a "risk" of being sued?

Remember napster? Napster's servers had no content on them at all, and

the source of the instructions on how to assemble/decrypt chunks.
