You've just made a sweeping generalization which is incorrect. Torrents of illegal, pirated software or movies are illegal.
Would it be illegal to know the postal address of someone selling illegal weapons?
That's completely irrelevant.
Yes but your argument isn't making any sense because you mention both legal OR illegal guns and you're comparing that to just illegal torrents.
legal gun = legal torrent
illegal gun = illegal torrent
They can both have legal or illegal uses.
Let me quote what I said. Notice how I have prefixed the noun 'torrents' with the adjective 'illegal'. Yes, I acknowledge that there are legal torrents, but so far, I have only been discussing the illegal ones, since it is the illegal torrents which have gotten the Pirate Bay into trouble.
