At least until uTorrent users (whether  client side or hosting side) get
slapped with bandwidth  overage charges. :-) If an ISP  can't charge for
this kind of  usage, then their network will become  saturated and cause
the loss  of customers. Bad  ISP goes  out of business,  ``nasty torrent
users'' are forced off the network, end of story.
