Illegal where? We host things in various places, and laws vary from country
to country. I don't see how you can decide this, and even then, how you will
resolve conflicts. In Canada, citizens pay taxes in exchange for
downloading/copying/sharing content. Therefore no private citizen is
harassed about downloading music etc. Do you propose that we bar all
software that infringes on any law anywhere?
