All download and streaming sites are legal to use just so long you dont upload or seed copyrighted material. The latest Bit Torrent clients can stream.

A better start would be understanding how the law works. Laws usually specify what isnt permitted.

ThePirateBay only hosts the torrent file. It's the users that hold the actual illegal file, therefore ThePirateBay is legal.

Tell that to the many sites shut down and the lad from the uk that may be extradited to the us for merely pointing people to the files.

Making money out of pointing people to the files when some of them were in the USA was the issue there, and yes our extration treaty is rediculous and we need to join Germany in not allowing our citizens to be extradited to the USA.

Simply downloading and watching 'pirate' material in private without distributing is not in anyway illegal in the UK as far as I am aware.

Many people have already recieved letters for material they have just downloaded and watched. I Think technically streaming them you are ok. Usually if you are sent a letter the cost is a few thousand. I will have to have a look around but if i remember rightly there was one film that made more money off the letters than the film grossed in cinemas.

I'm not sure about the legality of just streaming or downloading (surely illegal?) but anyway the bittorrent protocol makes it extremely difficult to download without seeding/uploading at all

No - a tiny, miniscule percentage of P2P users received letters for DISTRIBUTING content via Bit Torrent or similar peer to peer systems. And such extortion attempts have been sucessfully fought off in the UK courts, and just simply ignored by most recipients. I wouldnt even respond unless I got a court summons which is highly unlikely. Even in the US such fishing expeditions are hitting road blocks.

For instance I run an open WiFi connection as some of my devices dont support encryption and turning on encryption slows down traffic massively. Good luck proving it was actually me that distributed something in those circumstances.

If you are really worried about the minute chance of having such issues, then just get a VPN account for Peer to Peer or a Usenet account for download only. Such services are available for free, or for a small subscription for premium service levels.

Only if you are dumb enough to cough up after a threatening letter. They are not getting too far with those that refused:

If you think just downloading / streaming is illegal in the UK then please explain under what law?

It isnt hard to block uploads. You can set upload connections to zero on your client.

Hey if you want to go up against some of the richest companies in the world then thats fine but at least people should know the risks. All this is academic anyway seeing as the governments bill that would come into force in 2013 will directly go after people downloading copyrighted material.
Under this bill it would be up to the ISPs to send a letter to any household downloading copyrighted material to stop. It is three strikes and your out. If you recieve a third letter your address is then blacklisted and you are no longer allowed internet.

And as said in the article it is unclear how many settled out of court which is three to five thousand pound each. That ruling you linked to was one ruling in one court in one state in another country. IP addresses acording to UK law you are responsible for the safe keeping of. Anything done under your IP address is squarely aimed at you. If you do go to court against a company of this size you will be paying a lot more than three to five thousand to defend yourself.

But it is clear that no money has been extracted from those that didnt settle. I linked to rulings regarding the case linked to above.

Thats just total rubbish. There is no UK law making you responsible for IP addresses. Thats complete bs you just made up. In actual fact UK law specifically exempts those who provide an internet service to others from any responsbility for the actions of those others, providing they remove infringing content when notified, etc.

To defend yourself against civil copyright claims would be simply by turning up to your local county court and stating your case. The costs would be zero unless you lost, and they cant ask you to pay their costs either even if they won. If you simply state 'it wasnt me, i just pay the bill' it is very hard for them to prove otherwise.

And just turning up at your local small claims court to fight you and preparing a case and submnitting the relevant documents would cost them hundreds. Hence why passive resistance is the best policy - just ignore them and it will most likely go away. And if it doesnt, you havnt lost out in the chance to defend yourself - but you have made their life much harder, and made it more costly to pursue others.

Good luck to them finding a solicitor that wants to take on such cases: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/jan/18/acslaw-solicitor-internet-piracy-suspended/

Yes that's pretty accurate, and makes it clear that you are unlikely to receive more than a threatening letter if that, unless you distribute for personal gain.

As stated if you care, get a VPN for about £4 a month: https://www.ipredator.se/
Or if too tight to pay, use a free one (puts adverts in your browsing, but is easily turned on and off): http://expatshield.com/
Or use Usenet http://www.giganews.com/
