There’s a great article at CNET called The P2P mistake at Ohio University written by the head of BitTorrent, concerned a certain mid-west campus which has banned P2P (peer to peer) computer use on campus.  Granted that the author is bound to defend his own turf (BitTorrent being the P2P poster child) but he makes an impressive case of how Ohio U is throwing the baby out with the bath water by ignoring the promise and other uses of P2P other than illegal downloads.
