This is good news. I hope it is successful, and travels outside of the US.

There are many legit reasons for using p2p.

All linux distros that I know of have torrent options
Many larger open source software (e.g. openoffice) has torrent options

It's an easy and secure way to send private files to another person/people anywhere in the world - I use it for sending/sharing photos with my family

Games are starting to use p2p to send updates - World of Warcraft is an example

Some people I know on dial-up use it for anything they can, as trying to dl even a 20MB file is a pain.

I have seen it effectively used on a network where extremly large video files need to be sent to several computers for work.

There will be other reasons as well.

It'll make absolutely no difference to the rest of the world.

A lot of the discussion about "net neutrality" appears to have assumed that the 'net only exists within the US.

Fortunately at this time my provider, only limits high use customers bandwith at peak times, they don't care what you do as long as you have paid, and they will limit speeds when your limit has been used.
