We can not advocate illegal things, and simply say which laws we want to
change and why.

Well, I was thinking about copyrighted material p2p sharing. But note
that some laws, despite not explicitly saying p2p is illegal, may try to
prevent you from using it.
In France, the HADOPI law makes you guilty of failing to secure your
Internet access if your IP adress is catched sharing copyrighted
material (a trick not to have to prove that you are the one who actually
did it), unless you have installed a labelised security program.
We have not yet such labelised programs, but most of us fear for example
that they could only labelise basic programs that prevent you from using
any p2p protocol. This is an example of making the use of p2p indirectly
unlawful, and in France, everything has already been voted on the law
