I found this article about a fellow who was arrested on charges of possesion of child porn because iTunes sharing had been turned on. An odd case, but certainly interesting in that this feature helped bring someone to justice.

even if the RIAA doesn't like it...

it sure turned out to be a good thing in this case. I think the police would be pleased that they caught this sicko... (and in some cases, almost saddened of what this guy did.)

Not the first time either

A friend of mine in Europe found someone in a youth hostel sharing similar material using iTunes. Hostel management called the cops and had him dragged away. He was already wanted for some other charges.
