Well, Yes, but some of your facts are wrong, rowdy
Which facts are you refering to?
Making backups is ok. So far. However the copy protection on many discs is supposed to stop this as well. That's immoral, (IMHO) not illegal. Cracking the protection on a disc I bought and copying it for my use only is also legal.
Obtaining copyrighted material for free is illegal. If you tape a TV show and give it to your friend to watch, you broke the law. That doesn't make your VCR illegal though. I'll stand behind my facts. I'm not trying to start a flame war.
Njnetfan17 asked for some advice. My post was meant to clarify the advice. There are too many [edited for language] rumours floating around the net as it is.
Here are some references for you:
Peer-to-peer is Illegal
This just isn't true. Sharing of copyrighted material without permission is illegal, because the author of the material (writer, song artist, film distributor, etc) has not given permission for the material to be distributed. However, peer-to-peer services are legal. Many companies use them internally for file sharing.
The decision upholds an April 2003 U.S. District Court decision that these services should not be held liable for the illegal behavior of their users. The studios and labels appealed the decision and the appeals court heard oral arguments on the case in February.
The district court correctly applied the law, wrote Judge Sidney Thomas, a member of the three-judge panel for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

And by the way I use Limewire. Only other thing is no matter what P2P you use make sure to turn off the connect on start feature.
