In the past, UK copyright law was mainly aimed at commercial copyright infringement- that is, you'd get nicked for copying a VHS then trying to sell it on the market, but taping your favourite TV programme and making a copy for a mate (for free) was a-ok. The act of copying wasn't illegal, it was making money from the act.

Obviously attitudes and pressures have shifted since then and it all changed with the Digital Economy Act in 2010 which targeted the infringement act directly and targeted digital & online copyright infringement. It isn't that you're 'making' a copy any more, but 'obtaining' one through means other that legitimate purchase, not to mention the fact that torrenting is bi-directional- you're sharing all the chunks you obtain.

The act was controversial when it went through and some sections have been repealed for being unenforceable. ISPs were especially resistant to the responsibilities placed on them for detecting and listing infringers and censoring the internet by blocking websites (the part of the act that was repealed), plus they felt it unfairly targeted large ISPs, for which infringers would migrate to smaller ones to avoid detection. There's also privacy concerns and involvement of human rights groups over how detection is performed.

The number of cases of people caught infringing going to caught is still fairly small- most people are sent letters and offered relatively small sums (£300-£500) to settle out of court. I couldn't locate statistics on how many did so and how many who didn't were the target of further legal action. Obviously there has been issues with scaremongering and people being targeted with fake settlement offers in the hope they opt to avoid legal entanglements.

Anecdotally, Stephen Fry supports non-commercial piracy and has admitted to downloading TV episodes from BitTorrent. I don't believe he's been legislated against but... he's a public figure. Your mileage may vary.

You wouldn't download an Erebus, would you?

I just undocked for the first time and someone challenged me to a duel. Wat do?

You're trolling, but just in case someone takes you seriously, No they aren't.

Most of them are.


Torrenting copyrighted crap is illegal, using torrent for legal reasons(*snigger*) is perfectly fine...



iirc the EVE client is a torrent.
