so i take it they aren't even bothering to judge whether or not something may be a legal download? i guess it makes sense, though it isn't fair to the however small number of people may have a legitimate use for torrents.

I most definitely agree with your sentiment.

Unfortunately in this case, torrent trackers are somewhat like a brothel... not everyone who goes in ends up having sex, but most do.

No Canadian ISP blocks torrents completely. Not according to the Bad ISPs at AzureusWiki.

I have downloaded about a terabyte of anime in the last two years....ALL of it is legal (since it isn't licensed here in the US). You would be surprised to find out how often torrents are used for legal purposes (it's not just Linux).

Guys, read the original article:

It appears that the ISPs do not like the idea of this filtering and do not support it. The ones that are participating in the trials say that they are doing to in order to set an example of why it won't work.

Horay... i was re reading one of my pc mags and telstra (australia only internet infrastructure company) says that it could slow down the internet by upto 30%

Edit:

Hey i was just thinking wouldn't that encrypted p2p protocol stop the isp from tracking who is using p2p compared to someone who is just uploading heaps.
