  1. P2P downloads are the only means by which major events such as baseball can be multicast to large audiences as the new technologies have shown. They are also the medium for large scale VoD and content distribution services. Hence blocking P2P downloads is really akin to killing major applications on the net.

    This will also have a bearing on how wireless networks will work in the future.
