I'd really rather we didn't promote software piracy on this list. Whatever 
the status and legality of the license the fact is that using bittorrent in 
this way means you are _sharing_ the (copyrighted) software that you are 
downloading. You will notice that the vast majority of legal threats have 
been thrown at people who are sharing content, as such I don't think we 
should advocate either downloading or sharing of copyrighted software, 
whatever the source.
