You can still use The Pirate bay for music and movies > There are also private torrent sites that only a member from the inside can let you in and since its so closed off its almost never found.

If they really wanted to crack down on illegal downloads they would require ISPs to either block known torrent sites or notify the police if your IP downloads from them. It would be simply for the ISP to put a tracker on their network to notify them when users access certain sites since thats how they find child porn users from the sites the access.
