Illegal reproduction. Illegal distibution... Not that I disagree with file-sharing...
p2p sharing networks, although they evolve into illegal areas, aren't solely for illegal purposes. If all you and everyone else shared was stuff you had legal right to redistribute, then it'll all be good. Like GNU/Linux isos, or your own band's music, or GD Live bootlegs, or free software programs. The p2p programs themselves aren't wrong or illegal, but the stuff being tossed around is (and the people throwing it around).
