I don't want to get into the legal illegal discussion, I am aware that it is not possible as discussed in other threads. Still, I think it would be a good idea to separate these two categories. -P2P is often accompanied with very high and constant upstream usage. Especially home users and small businesses have a problem with that.(e.g. 50/3 like my own). -in times of everything in the cloud(yes, times change), nearly every cloud service is also a file sharing platform. But it is too far fetched to put them into the same category as P2P. What about Apple's iCloud, Dropbox, Microsoft 365, Mega, etcetera? Apple now has iCloud Drive which is especially designed to share files, as is Dropbox and all the others. -A company might want to block sites like Dropbox, Mega, etc. to prevent a security breach through file theft. I have no problem with an upload burst to get files onto a server. But p2p will inevitably block my upload capabilities until the torrent is stopped, what is easily achieved with an upload speed of 3meg.
