You have to apply for a permit at your Municipal Court Bldg, give a blood sample, submit a letter of reference to the Magistrate then wait 60 days for approval.
If you live in Russia you have to kiss the Czar's feet.

Hi Erik - I've been into Sun Ra since the late 60's. Awesome soundscapes.

Costs are varied but most likely affordable. I found this :

(Sorry if this is not as helpful as the previous poster's suggestion)

You can do it for nothing if you do not care about ratios.
Use public tracker like Dennis Stalker or just DHT (no tracker at all).
You can create the torrent file and send it by email to all interested people.
You can set up a free webpage where you can inform the members about new torrent titles available. All interested members can send you an email with
torrent request - like vine request). The only difference is that you don't need to send the torrent file by mail and you can serve all interested people by sending them torrent file by email instead of sending the vine just to one "winner".
In fact you don't even need a website. You can do it on Yahoo groups - as a "members-only" Yahoo group.
Very simple - and original I'd say.
