just wanted to know because as far as i was aware it is only illegal to 'Share' your files over p2p networks etc. so is downloading only e.g. rapidshare or newsgroups also illegal in the eyes of UK law?
also whats happening here in the UK. i have heard a bit about government proposals to try and get ISPs to police the internet and use DPI! surely that is a breach of data protection. is this or could this really happen?
