      I wouldn't worry about being fined for someone in your house downloading things from Bittorrent.
      I would add to that, that if you are or someone is downloading content / files that are not legal, then you do run a risk of being caught and prosecuted. Granted not a high risk, but there is a risk.

      Don't you think you are sharing illegal files with Bitorrent? It is a P2P program just like Napster, it just uses a different protocol. Torrents are different in that a lot of legal downloads are available, for example Linux distros. In fact it is easier to trace users of torrents than P2P clients like Limewire, so your chances of being caught at illegal downloading and fined or even barred by an ISP are greater.

      Interestingly there is a letter in the current CS, from a man who is being pursued by lawyers for 600 for an illegal film download. He is denying it, but admits he has a 14 year old child who has full access to the internet. I don't get the impression he is very PC wise.
