Is the only illegal part of it seeding/uploading? And after the download finishes, does choosing to not share the file stop the seeding?
I'm using azureus and want to know an effective way of protecting myself.

The illegal part is sharing (both uploading and downloading) copyrighted material that has not given permission to be freely distributed.

Use PeerGuardian for protection.

Ahh I know that when you are downloading you are technically seeding too, but I download files no larger than 300MB anyway. Usually people who get caught download games or really huge files.
And yes I'm back Renkies. Only when I have a question though, since I belong to no other forums :P

Even if you're caught, you usually just get a letter from your ISP and a termination of service.

It doesn't matter how much you download. Downloading even 1 kilobyte of data of a record from a major record label is considered illegal.

I know but my point is if I download large files there's a larger chance of me getting caught since there is a longer time my ip will be out there.

If you have PeerGuardian then your IP is never out there.

Well, I don't think it really matters how long you're active for. Once you start downloading, your IP is logged. Also, stopping the seeding after you complete a download is considered selfish.

Same here, I never seed.

mmmhm
the illegal aspect is file "sharing"
which leads me to believe if you seed thats the bad part.

I already told you, the illegal aspect is the copyrighted material itself. It doesn't matter whether you are seeding or leeching.
