I would be sure to review our Terms of Service to ensure that all of your activity is above-board, but P2P media sharing isn't inherently illegal or against the rules on its own. As long as you are not distributing copyrighted material in a way that breaks the law, self-hosted media serving should be totally fine.

If your activity is flagged as somehow breaking copyright law, we will open a ticket on your account asking you to stop the activity and confirm that the copyrighted material is no longer present. You are afforded a few days to respond to these tickets before any network restrictions are required, so please be sure to reply accordingly.
