Like all things in life, darknets can be used to either steal and share movies, software, etc. Or they can be used for noble purposes like letting dissidents in repressive societies share their thoughts by setting semi-private networks, etc.

The darknet is nothing more than a peer-to-peer network that uses the Internet as a bridge. Quite similar to the way an AM radio signal uses the stratosphere.

I agree. Darknets sound like a great idea. Are there any whitepapers out there that support installing and configuring a darknet?
