It's a good program regardless of what you download, because you never really know who you're connecting to. I got proof of this when I discovered I got an email from my ISP warning me that MediaSentry (well known anti P2P organisation) had reported my IP to them for downloading Knoppix (a free, legal and legitimate Linux distrib as many of you will know).
Point is, be careful who you're connecting to; it's evident that some organisations would happily report you for even owning a BitTorrent client, even if you are only downloading non copyrighted material (which is what I use it for; Linux iso's, Linux live CD's and the like).
