True, for content for which you don't have the rights. But when you use 
Bittorrent or other P2P applications to download you're also uploading 
the content to distribute the load.  That would be a no-no, so don't use 
any P2P protocols if you're downloading content for personal use.

Of course, freely available content such as Die Beauty or Nina Paley's 
movie or Allison Crowe's music can be shared and distributed, so 
uploading that is a yes-yes.
