I've heard so, just dunno if it's true or not....

If that's true, I think I'll just go for a basic 512K connection rather ...

Probably he is refering to the famous Bit Torrent software that allow users to share files. I only can say my colleagues still enjoy the art of BT here. Enjoy!

BT is against the law? No idea about that! Is FTP against the law too?

Actually it is not an offence to use the software. But it is an offence when you use the software to share Copy Right Protected files.

I've been taught to share since young. I've been teaching my 2 & 3 years old children to share.

Generally, SHARING is NOT illegal.

Specifically, sharing of my family photos are not illegal if I want to....sharing of my magnificient SOFTWARE(ermm..not virus, spywares or other harmful stuffs) that I've written is not illegal. SHARING of COPYRIGHT SOFTWARES without approval of SOFTWARE OWNERS are.

FTP is also a means of allowing others to share.
Forum is a place where people share/voice their knowledge/views.
Thumbdrive allows the sharing of files between computers. So do CD, DVD, portable HDD and etc.

Are those mentioned above illegal?

BT has an advance feature that allows for easier sharing. ie It is able to share what you've downloaded immediate even if the full download has not complete.

FTP sharing capability is more primitive. ie. It must complete the full download before sharing can be done.
