The use of peer-to-peer software such as BitTorrent to distribute media files that have been subject to (self) censorship or intimidation in attempts to prevent traditional broadcast.

A portmanteau of "Scientology" and "Torrent", in reference to the former's penchant for using litigation and harassment in attempts to silence any critics in the mainstream media.
Joe: "I really wanted to watch that documentary about Scientology, but the network decided not to show it at the last minute, in case they got sued."
Bob: "Don't worry, I downloaded it thanks to the wonders of Scientorrentology!"
