Maybe. IANAL but I suspect it will take a test case or two. One would hope that something like Freenet would be ok as it is designed to be ananoymised publishing network for use in oppressive legislatures. The distributed trackers of Bittorrent should also be excempt as there are good non-piracy related reasons to have such an architecture.
I suspect trying to anonymise Gnutella could well be seen as trying to aid piracy, where I would argue current black listing measures are only trying to prevent damage to the network regardless of the bad nodes operator's status.
It depends on what the next move of RIAA/MPAA et all will be. Unfortunatly I suspect wielding the legal stick has become a habit for them :-(
