Bad wording by Google and Verizon?

(1) send and receive lawful content of their choice;
(2) run lawful applications and use lawful services of their choice; and
(3) connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network or service, facilitate theft of service, or harm other users of the service.

Um lawful? Meaning they are going to mess with torrent traffic cause MPAA and RIAA says it's used for piracy. Now what about the torrent traffic that is lawful. Ubuntu is downloaded through torrents. Other Linux platforms are downloaded by torrents.

Now let's see. They said lawful and when the RIAA and MPAA decide they have some piracy to kick in the butt they can go after Google and Verizon cause they say Lawful so I guess nothing illegal will be going on. From their rules it looks like the RIAA and MPAA is going to get what they want. The ISP policeing itself.

I know I'm not a great writer but I sure hope people understand what I am saying.

Verizon and Google need to watch how they word their policy might give them an open door to lawsuits from the RIAA and MPAA that Verizon and Google would lose right off cause of their policy.
