no don't you see their evil master plan?
if they bock all the Aussies from viewing porn, they can free up allot of bandwidth on porn sites and be able to load and watch em faster

block a entire country, and it will free up allot of traffic

Awesomeness. Let's go on then.

Firstly, yes Ubuntu does use it. Thenagain, UBUNTU IS FINANCIALLY BACKED UP BY A CORPORATION (by Canonical inc. to be specific), so of course they have the funds to do so. And I think saying most OSS is hosted in sourceforge is a little over-generalized - and even they can't handle even close to all the OSS out there. There's no way in heck SF could be able of hosting all the OSS that's been previously handled by Torrents.

EDIT: Also, if I recall correctly there was a notice displayed on Ubuntu website asking users to use torrents rather than the HTTP server in order to reduce stress (assuming financial) on Ubuntu supporters.
alright then, we have established that this will affect open source, how ever i am sure Microsoft will host Ubuntu on their on computers.......... jk

but seriously now it seems to be the only way to stop P2P piracy, even if it affects the legal uses ,

but i doubt it will work very effectively and the ISPs will just tell the government to try another method and it will be the last we will hear about it

I don't think it is the only way to stop piracy, if there is a way to stop piracy this won't be it. There's a thousand arguments along the lines of ideas such as 1)This is against what internet stands for 2)It would be like having the army on the streets because some people commit crimes 3)It's not fair to punish all for crimes of some and so on... I won't even bother listing/elaborating all of them.

Actually, they do. Most Chinese ISP throttles BT. That's why most Chinese P2P'ers moved on to using Thunder (XunLei) or just watch P2PTV (like PPStream) now.

In the event of a nuclear disaster, four things will survive.

1. Cockroaches
2. AGP
3. Porn
4. Torrents

Long live the torrents.

William, I only have one thing to say in regards to the ground you stand on:

"Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it."

I know for a DAMN fact that if this comes across to the US that I'll be instigating any kind of protest I can. If this actually gets passed, then I'll start wearing a tinfoil hat. Domino effect anyone? All we need is for governments to start grabbing at more power.

People shouldn't fear their Government; Governments should fear the people.
