Not every book that is shared (with torrents) is illegally shared, so I did not want to open that can of worms.
True. Even Project Gutenberg uses a torrent file to make it's available books more accessible to the public for example. But it's true that a good many books are shared via that route that probably shouldn't be. Even Baen's Free Library has had torrents of it's books if I recall correctly. If/when Baen decides to change their policies on free ebooks (or enforce any changes they are currently making) I imagine that will be something they have to deal with as well.
