No, in itself it is not illegal. You are allowed to load and instal it, but in the eyes of the law, not use it. I think you can download some special material but Im not sure of that.

And by the way, all those stories of the police tracking your IP is bull****. They cant find you in your basement

no its actually legal somehow, the fact that limewire pro costs money has something to do with it, the government would have for sure steped in if it was illegal.

If you live in Canada you can legally d/l music from it. Just do it... all the cool kids are trying it.

God damn, just download it. Think of how many arrests there would've been if the police actually gave a ****. Plus the free version is the same damn thing as the pro version. The only way they can mess with you is by shutting down Limewire, which isn't going to happen. It took them years to shut down the free version of Napster.

The proram is legal because their user agreement states that they have nothing to do with what people put on there.

However, downloading the material isn't. But who cares?

Use torrents, much better, as they will not not rape your computer with spy/adware.


And Limewire itself is legal, but using it to download copyrighted material is not.

Download Pro for free from some torrent website and use that. The only people that get in trouble for Limewire stuff are the people that upload thousands of songs.

I've never gotten spyware or anything from Limewire. I've never tried Torrents though. I'm too lazy to go find sites to download off of.

Thats why we get ares, which can double as P2P and torrents, that and demonoid = awesome

It is a legal application. It's INTENDED use is legal, what most people use it for is illegal. Most arrests are against the people SHARING a **** load of music though.
#19
Yeah, the program is legal, it is uploaded and downloading copyrighted material that is illegal. Just tell the program not to upload anything off your computer and delete/rename files you download and delete your history. Do all that and it would be hard for you to get busted.
#20
Like said before, use torrents. uTorrent + Demonoid + PeerGaurdian = foolproof.

Yeah, I think it's legal because you pay for limewire pro, which I guess means they pay someone to be okay? Either way just do what I do and stay away from the naked kids and don't download the files that look fake. Oh, and tell it not to share with people.

[edit] ^ that too.

Tool - options - sharing tab (on the side) - then Unclick the box that says share finished downloads. Just to be safe when you're done with that click the uploads tab - go into each option and unclick the boxes and set the number of uploads to 0 in the 2 areas.

Technically if the stuff you're downloading is the property of someone who shared it on there in the first place then it is legal (ie. if they made it/own the copyright).

That generally doesn't happen though.

Oh and as people have said if you're not uploading stuff that isn't yours you should be ok.

It was my impression that they don't do anything about the downloaders but look for the big file sharers.

On soulseek I'm sharing 10,000+ music files...hah...

Time to move them to another folder.

Do you guys know that you can just go on Limewire, search for Limewire Pro and download that there? I find it hilarious that you can download the paid-for version of Limewire through their own software... free!

Do you know how many millions of people use limewire a day? Screw Legality, You'll never be caught.

I don't believe that limewire is illegal and it's highly unlikely that you'll get caught unless you're downloading while on college campus...
