So, is having filesharing programs evidenc of a crime? I thought there were legitimate uses for filesharing? There are many musicians who give away files. Are you saying it's still illegal to download them?

Not necessarily, but the RIAA has filed a lawsuit against LimeWire, so it may eventually obtain information on who has downloaded the program. Then they start digging into those IP addresses until they find files being transferred.
