Those are unfounded rumors. It's true that the creator of uTorrent struck a deal with a company that has been associated with anti-piracy, but the deal was only about supplying program components for corporate BT distribution, not to mess with uTorrent.
No, I see there are "new" rumors. I'm checking it out now. Above link was about a issue from last year...
This is probably the source of the contraversy: http://torrentfreak.com/bittorrent-a...20join-forces/ -- unfortunately it's down for me
Maybe related: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=26561 -- if you notice uTorrent sending data to an 239.x.x.x IP address, that's normal and harmless

It appears that the original person who made the "discovery" may not have done a proper investigation.

In my opinion I don't think the guys at Utorrent would do something sneaky like this without telling us. Even if they did, are the MPAA & RIAA going to go out on a rampage and sue everyone that dowloads copyrighted material off BitTorrent? Seems very unrealistic to me.
