A thread like this might have been done before but idc. So I've used limewire and I've probably downloaded 30 songs. My freinds say that if I get caught its like 1K a song in fines. Have any of you been caught or know someone thats been caught?
Is it even illegal?

It is illegal, and im pretty sure theres a hefty fine.

But I say as long as you dont give out music to alot of people and keep pretty qquiet about it, you should raelly have anything to worry about.

The only wayo anyone can catch you if you share you files. Just turn off sharing and you're safe. So yes you can download your animal sex videos and not get caught.

I don't think you'll get caught unless you do something where they need the cops to search your computer.

If its illegal, then how come they don't shut it down. =/

Can't be illegal because I hear the new mp3 player Microsoft made can share music with other people with the same mp3 player. Just like limewire shares files from one computer to another.

Ive downloaded for years (limewire and torrents), and well over 500 albums, and never had any sort of inkling I was going to be prosecuted.

Oh and I prefer torrents.

here`s the real deal.
it`s not blackmarket...yet.
it`s what`s considered grey market.
it`s frowned apon, and discouraged,
but think of ALL the people doing it.
how will they ever find you?
just don`t download like 90 songs in one day,
and you`ll be fine.

btw...anybody who is using basic...
here`s the link to a free version of the newest pro:

a guy got caught and posted on here once. he got a letter in the mail explaining that he had to pay 74000 $ or something like that and he was freaking out about it.

the reason he got caught and the thing that he was in trouble for wasnt that he had the songs on his comp, but it was because he was sharing them.
go into your settings and make it so that you don't share any songs and nobody will care. and even if they do, any fines you may cop will be far less than if you were sharing them

bottom line is though, it is illegal and if you have a problem with that, then dont do it
