just because you CAN use torrent to get illegally obtained stuff it does not mean people ARE using it.
i mean anyone with a rapidshare account can use firefox to get illegal files, we dont instantly assume they are though.
good point, and this forum needs to hear it.
I often use it to get OpenSUSE releases - perfectly legal and above board - sometimes it's better just having a torrent client chugging away in the background which can be re-started where it left off than downloading 10 GB of files etc.
Also for sharing LIVE music recorded from gigs which we've played in and our own amateur pics and films -- totally nothing illegal at all.
In anycase I'm not sure if most ISP's would understand what I'm doing anyway with this.
