Does anyone know how dropbox works?

Let's say I have a folder. I want to give share it (read only) to other people with dropbox accounts. If these people start creating links, would that use it the bandwidth of everyone who shares that file, or just the account that created that link?

Just wondering if we can do distro via dropbox.

So then, we can just share our files with other members with dropbox accounts, and as long as we don't create links, there's no problem.

Instead of waiting for a torrent to go up, they can just grab the file off their dropbox account when it syncs
