Re: BitTorrent - can it be blocked?

I thinkTor's aim is clearly written in

The reality is that it is not very clear cut. I do agree about your router analogy, but the reality is there's not enough legal precedences of who should be blamed especially when anonymous system is utilized.

Is claiming that you were running Tor server sufficient? I don't know, our laws obviously haven't kept up with reality.

Isn't that just like asking "I can cut orange with this knife, but isn't it also aimed to stab people?"
