      Anyone using P2P now that the Digital Economy Bill has been passed is really asking for trouble, because file sharing is far more serious than file downloading, and if you are not aware of the difference, you should not be using P2P.

      I was under the impression this would not take effect from late 2011? :S

      Not all uploading = filesharing. People send home made videos to relatives etc. You can't presume all uploading is illegal, so would sky be unhappy at you uploading GBs and GBs of data?

      Given that world of warcraft distributes it's patches via p2p and that plenty of other applications use p2p as a valid and legal distribution method.

      No government would be so stupid to say that "uploading is bad" (well perhaps our one)

      Digital Economy Bill is for downloading / sharing copyrighted material, but the way this government works even they wont get it right
