Which brings up another couple of questions:
1. Some networks of this type distribute their seeds in random
caches amongst their population. If you don't know it's there, are you
liable for it?
2. For a copyright violation to occur, you need a "significant
portion of the original work." Does having a chunk that qualifies as
1/30th of a copyrighted work
qualify for copyright violation via unauthorized
distribution? I don't know and IANAL, but I'd say that it's questionable.
