http://mute-net.sourceforge.net/ (MUTE) is designed with anonymity and encryption in mind from the start, and makes Big Brother (be it called MPAA, RIAA, CIA, etc.) tracking attempts on p2p transfers much harder to accomplish successfully. Bittorrent is great, but users need to stay smart if they're doing something that is considered illegal depending on what place or time they live.

Seems to me that the other problem with suing bitTorrect users is that at the time you download part of the file from them, they may not have downloaded the whole thing. They may therefore not yet know what it is. It's quite possible that as soon as they have the whol thing and they see that it's a copyrighted work, they then delete the file because that wasn't what they intended to download.
