To proxy a torrent, means non-discrimatory proxying, meaning it will proxy
a file regardless legal or not, and the fact it would proxy illegal 
content is very grey area in law in many countries, in this country, it 
could be seen to be providing a ISP hosted copy of illegal content, and 
the laws that currently protect ISP's here from what their users do, may 
become void and we'd be screwed over in courts.

There are some ISP's in this country that are now using and some soon to 
be using such p2p proxying hardware, so I guess sooner or later the legal 
status in that regard will I'm sure be challenged in the federal court.
