Just wondering, is limewire legal here in North America? I've heard that there's a loophole that involves music coming from australlia or something that makes it legal here in the USA. Just wondering, not try to rat anyone out. Thx

Stealing from thieves, that's illegal.

Sharing computer data, that's illegal.

Limewire is like a young boy. By itself, its completely legal. But the things you want to do with it are illegal.

People need to stop posting this question!!!

No its not illegal to have but if you use it to download copyrighted material then it is.

apperently its legal, they give you rules and stuff, it seems illegal though =/ copywritten music and such

Don't use limewire, its a poorly constructed program. Use Soulseek.

whether its legal or not, people are still gonna download it and copyrighted material off of it, and they cant possibly persecute all the people that have it and use it every day so i dont think its that big of a deal

Exactly, so I'm guessing whatever you're planning to use Limewire for will be illegal...

Unless he's big on music that the copyright has expired on?

I see that its wrong to download copyrighted material but what was the original program meant for? Businesses or something? It has audio and video along with the file sharing. You'd think they'd find a way to stop all the misuse.

It was meant for sharing files. They just knew some people would like to share their music files.

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.
