I have not read anywhere that Comcast claims to be managing P2P for illegal content; that was what AT&T proposed doing. The only reason I have seen that Comcast gives for managing P2P is to prevent upstream congestion from interfering with applications and services that are sensitive to packet loss, such as voice (pretty bad if a call to 911 loses some packets) and real-time gaming (sucks when your character gets killed because of a delay in your command to cast that spell). Not a value judgment, just a fact.

really? and what if I replaced that said "illegal" p2p with, er, a big photo/home movie upload? Would the nutcases at Comcast say that me daring to use my connection goes against their TOS? When you come down to it, it's really the same thing. Whether I'm uploading kiddie pr0n via p2p, or photos to grandma, shouldn't matter to Comcast. And no, I don't set my BT client to use 100% upload bandwidth all the time, in fact I keep it shut down when I'm not actively using it.
