Can you not prevent illegal P2P activity without punishing all customers?

It is unfortunately currently not possible to automatically distinguish between legitimate Peer to Peer file-sharing downloads (such as licenced music, copies of Linux distributions, etc) and downloads that contain copyright protected content.

This means we cannot only block the 'illegal' downloads made using Peer to Peer file-sharing applications, not allowing legitimate downloads to take place. To block the 'illegal' downloads we have to block the protocols entirely.
