Of course they would, thats their job.
Again BIT TORRENT is not illeagal and people should stop saying it is.
Thanks to people saying BIT TORRENT is illegal we are now penalized by our ISP'f for using the vastly superior method of downloading.
Again the illegal part is the cracking of the software.
Is it illegal to download the software, and then purchase your own licencse to use it?
No as the download part is simply a method of transmitting data. It is once you circumvent the copy-protection that you are 'breaking the law'.
You can not be pursecuted for downloading software that you legally own.
It is ilegal to upload however....
