Not sure if I want to give my address to a "company" who wants to share music for free. Do we even know if this is the people behind Limewire, and not some craft lawyers? Think I'll give it a miss.


Man, I'm paranoid

It's not the people behind Limewire:

Ordering a free T-Shirt off the internet isn't illegal, and is in no way proof that you've ever downloaded anything illegally.

I think your safe on this one.

That's not to say they won't sell your information on.

The T-shirt looks ok so i'm gonna give some heat....

Keep Limeware away. LOL!

The amount of machines I have had to clean virus' from when people download crap from Limeware and other similar stuff.

Didn't they used to install gator and other spyware/malware with it in the past too?

free is free

Why bring back limewire? It's just a software client to access the Gnutella network, other clients are available should you wish your machine to be routing requests for child pornography and other unsavoury materials.

Signed up If we don't want to use Limewire we don't have to. May as well have a choice?

Sure, in addition to my previous comment, they sound trustworthy

On February 15, 2010, Lime Wire reversed its previous anti-bundling … On February 15, 2010, Lime Wire reversed its previous anti-bundling stance and announced the inclusion of an Ask.com-powered browser toolbar which must be explicitly opted-out to prevent installation.[13] The toolbar sends web and bittorrent searches to Ask.com, and LimeWire searches to an instance of LimeWire on the user's machine.In LimeWire versions before 5.0, users could accidentally configure the software to allow access to any file on their computer, including documents with personal information. Recent versions of LimeWire do not allow unintentional sharing of documents or applications. In 2005, the US Federal Trade Commission issued a consumer warning regarding the dangers of using peer-to-peer file sharing networks, stating that using such networks can lead to identity theft and lawsuits.[14] On May 5, 2009, a P2P industry spokesman represented Lime Wire and others at a U.S. House of Representatives legislative hearing on H.R. 1319, "The Informed P2P User Act."[15]One investigation showed that of 123 randomly selected downloaded files, 37 contained malware – about 30%.[16] In mid 2008, a Macintosh trojan exploiting a vulnerability involving Apple Remote Desktop was distributed via LimeWire affecting users of Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard.[17] The ability to distribute such malware and viruses has also been reduced in versions of LimeWire 5.0 and greater, with the program defaulting to not share or search for executable files.Prior to April 2004, the free version of LimeWire was distributed with a bundled program called LimeShop (a variant of TopMoxie), which was, spyware. Among other things, LimeShop monitored online purchases in order to redirect sales commissions to Lime Wire LLC. Uninstallation of LimeWire would not remove LimeShop. With the removal of all bundled software in LimeWire 3.9.4 (released on April 20, 2004), these objections were addressed.[18] LimeWire currently has a facility that allows its server to contact a running LimeWire client and gather various information.[19]An identity theft scheme involving LimeWire was discovered in Denver in 2006.[20] On September 7, 2007, Gregory Thomas Kopiloff of Seattle was arrested in what the U.S. Justice Department described as its first case against someone accused of using file sharing computer programs to commit identity theft. According to federal prosecutors, Kopiloff used LimeWire to search other people's computers for inadvertently shared financial information and then used it to obtain credit cards for an online shopping spree.[21]

Never used it myself precisely for that reason

Good old limewire, provider of spyware and viruses for absolutely nothing!

The amount of viruses on Limewire was incredible.
After a while you develop a kind of 6th sense to avoid them

Simon Cowell owns limewire, therefore limewire is of his demonic empire............ I am staying well clear of limes from now on.......

P.S Can the above statement be considered a libel?

sounds like my ex wife

order mine, thanks

Must be me but I used limewire for ages and can honestly say I never had any probs with viruses etc

Having said that, I was mindful of what I was downloading and fro whom.

Even so, it was given a bad name and mud sticks.

does simon cowell really own limewire? that program gave me way too many viruses and for those who claim they never had this problem should probably get a better virus checker!

Yep, sure enough if you have never had a virus, then chances are you have never used Limewire. You get more Virus's from this programme than you would staying in a hospital for a night (and that is saying something)

there are better Torrents and software to download torrents out there. (allegedly ;))

Thanks it said free so that will do for me lol

Go nicely with my "i went to mexico and all i got was swine flu" t-shirt for £1.99 ages ago as an under shirt top to keep me warm in this cold weather. fighting the recession!

Haha, Limewire is for total noobs that want to get caught for downloading illegal files X)

Get yourself on Newsgroups and sign up to Astraweb who give you free SSL encryption for 7 odd quid a month.

Anyone with technical know-how never used limewire anyway, there's so many other avenues to get copyrighted material quicker and safer over the Internet these days.

And its really sad how the MPAA and RIPA tried to gag the spread of digital music and movies in the late 90's early 00's. If they pioneered the technology instead of trying to suppress it, they would be in a much better position these days.

But back to topic, any free T-Shirt is good, can always use it to polish the alloy wheels. Heat added.

T-shirts are sponsored by all the big anti-virus companies

Never had a problem in the days when I used Limewire. In general, people don't monitor their usage, so viruses and suchlike are missed and thus infections occur - it's all down to user experience.

Had to laugh at this, though...sounds like you're a PC repair specialist of some kind? If so, why campaign to get rid of these clients (Limewire, etc) - surely they're keeping you in a job?

maybe if the tshirt said limewire -ewww I would order it.
Wonder if it is worth anything on ebay if I get it anyway (_;)
