Did I say that? No. But downloading a torrent of movie is. Yes yes no one ever pirates movies, music and TV shows. All people do on p2p is download ISOs of Linux.
Downloading a .torrent file is not illegal.
Reading a book on how to rob a bank isn't illegal either.
Yet the RIAA sues to try and close the library.

That's a different issue. I am actually opposed to them shutting down torrent sites.

There are libraries with millions of fictional and nonfictional materials, many of which are educational.

Then there are libraries whose purpose, 99.9% of the time, is to index where to find copyrighted material to obtain freely.

There's a difference. It's a loophole in the law that is getting closer to closed every year.
