It is legal, but it's illegal to use it for copyright infringement.

So quite useless.

Edit: Use torrents for fucks sake.
#5
not for what you are using it for.

torrents and rapidshare are better.

I have no opinion on this matter.

Depends on what you download with it. It's not illegal to have LimeWire installed, but it's illegal to download copyrighted software with it.

Limewire is a oneway gateway to HELL!

Computer Hell that is! You're opening your computer up to all the viruses, spyware and malware the internet has to offer.

Limewire itself isn't illegal, but it can be used in illegal ways, i.e. copyright material sharing.

There are better and safer ways of doing it, that's all imma gonna say.

I think he got the point now

Only if it's copyrighted.

So pretty much all of it.
#16
It is legal for the software, but to download music/video/etc. it is illegal.

Also, get azureus for torrents ... torrents are way better

I don't think he even knows what the word "copyrighted" means.

No. but downloading copyrighted stuff = illegal.
Torrents = legal.
torrenting copyrighted stuff = illegal.

torrents = safer than limewire.

if that helps.

Limewire sucks ass. It's like Kazaa that has gone through plastic surgery. It looks nice but still has all the herpes, cancer and diabetes she used to.

I suggest Shareaza. But beware! The real program is hard to find because their homepage was stolen by some pirates who also made a program called "Shareaza" that has something to do with music...

I can give you the link if you desire the best P2P download action available to man

If topic creator doesn't know the answer to his question, topic creator should lurk a bit more before even thinking of downloading anything, ever.

It really doesn't matter which program you use as long as your download speeds can hit over 100KB/s

What, so spyware and viruses and a higher risk of getting caught don't really matter?

That doesn't work for me. It says something about a router, and I don't know wtf that is.

Limewire will have to do for now.

Yeah you weren't meant to get fast downloads.

It DOES work for you. It's normal that it says something about a router, because the router is the device that you're going to change the settings on

The way to go is winrar and Rapidshare, look for whatever albums you want on Blogsearch and extract the downloaded files on winrar.

Limewire/Torrents are P2P, which I'm pretty sure is illegal in the US now. Not so sure about Canada, but I haven't heard anything about it recently.

You can't make a technology illegal because of possible misuse.

There are plenty of legitimate applications of torrents.

Your friend is a liar and a moron. Limewire is horrible and you're stupid if you use it. There, I said it.

Quote by Abunai X

Then I suggest taking the five minutes and learning how to do it, you dolt. No computers just "can't seed."

Another thing, if you can't seed? Don't seed. Duh. Because you can still download. Again, duh.

THEN READ SOMETHING. Jesus Christ. It's amazing to me that you're knowingly ruining your computer because you're too lazy to learn simple terms like "router."

I swear to God. It's amazing that some people can tie their shoes in the morning.
