    Torrent is the first place for sharing copyrighted materials. For example, every new moves goes to torrents very quickly.

    Why people are heavily upload/seed torrents? What is their benefits?

    I understand that someone may seed back for something he has downloaded, but I do not understand why people bother by uploading new materials on torrent. The world of torrent is anonymous, and even uploaders do not gain a fame for their efforts.

    Is it just for the sake of god?

    They upload so all can enjoy the content. After I download a torrent if it is good quality, I seed it for at least 3 days. It is the same principal as BHW. Share and Share alike. :)

    Not everybody thinks commerce, people like to share. Some share their knowledge on Wikipedia, others share their skills on open source projects (like Linux), and there is a type of people who choose torrents.

    AFAIK no benefit in uploading and seeding other than making the content readily available and it can't be removed (can) for copyright.

    Exactly! For some reason I am always thinking how to monetize something. A lot of times people just want to share!

    I seed a bunch of stuff just because. The system wouldn't work if there were not people that didn't just seed for no other purpose than seeding.
