    ???????????

    and why is it expired im just asking a question

    Limewire iteself it NOT illegal.

    Downloading a NON copyright song is NOT illegal (you or I could record a song and make it available on Limewire and downlading that would NOT be illegal)..

    Downloading a copyright song IS illegal.

    no....


    It can be illegal

    LOL! The real answer is yes and no. There are trade-friendly tracks available... If I produce something and release it on Limewire and you downloaded it it would be perfectly legal.

    The majority of stuff is not though!

    Why is it stupid.

    No one will find out or care unless you start sharing them so download away, just put your share amount to 0 in your options and then remove the tracks from the shared folder.

    It's not illegal if they don't catch you :thumbsup:

    Why would it be legal to get them all for free?



    because some might not be copyrighted. As people have pointed out earlier in the thread

    LOL!

    Reminds me of Peep Show

    "This is like a moral dilemma... except it's not, because no-one else will know..."

    depends on the songs
