Limewire

Parent Category: File Sharing
Limewire is a peer to peer (p2p) file sharing program. All types of files including music, video and software can be shared between users.
Limewire was shutdown after a 4 year court battle for copyrighttheft.
A federal judge Kimba Wood ruled that "record companies "havesuffered - and will continue to suffer - irreparable harm fromLimeWire's inducement of widespread infringement of their works",adding that the potential damages were "staggering".
Limewire was shut down because it violated copyright law.
It doesn't, unless you download a virus or a file with a virus init. But sharing a copyrighted song or movie is illegal.
No it is not good. It is illegal.
Don't use it! It is loaded with Trojan horses
My best answer is to turn it into a mp3 file from iTunes LimeWire,then save it onto your computer. Then plug in your iPod shuffle onthe computer, and import the saved music from your computer to theiPod.
There are usually 4 trillion to 10 trillion illegal songsdownloaded each year, while 4 billion songs are legally downloaded.wow.
There are many places to get a free iPod game. Some games areavailable for free on the iPod search app.
Put into iTunes or windows or any media player
um... no, no, no, that question is so stupid i demand it not be answered, if you want an answer, call tech support and say "make it go"
Yessssssssssssssss. Nooooooooooooooooooooo Of coarse not.
In short: Yes, but. However, "Making unauthorised copies ofcopyrighted music recordings is against the law and may subject youto civil and criminal liability. A civil law suit could hold youresponsible for thousands of dollars in damages. Criminal chargesmay leave you with a felony record,...
I don't see why it wouldn't.
It can be but you have to be careful.. I would go to SiteAdvisor from McAffee (i don't know how to spell that sorry) and make sure it has no viruses or spam.. because then it's probably illegal. Lime Wire is safe I checked it, plus I have it.
If you are sharing with a non-family account holder then yes it is,but family-sharing is legal.

Not unless you have the admins password.
To download a song from itunes, it either costs .99 or 1.29. From limewire, songs are free so it depends where you get your music from. Getting onto your mp3 player is free
Limewire is a free P2P file sharing program..... so yes it would be free, but technically it is not legal to download files that way. Because file sharing is not legal in some places because of copyright and licensing reasons.
This is more likely to be a contract law issue than a copyright issue; agreements between schools and vendors can be incredibly complicated.
That's not a question so I don't know what you are asking.
You CAN NOT get songs from zune to i tunes!
Well, It Depends How You Use It FrostWire in itself is legal. FrostWire can be used as a peer-to-peer file-transferring system it is ileagle for people to post it copyrighted files on the the program but not ileagle to get it from them. In other words, FrostWare is legal as long as...
No! It is 100% Illegal! And because that web site is and has been in Court Trials the website has been shut down. They owe over a Few Billion. And So do a few of those users. If you do it you will be arrested.
Generally if it is likely to be copyrighted by a major broadcaster such as the BBC/ITV/etc then it is likely illegal as your are breaching copy-right regulations
People dont need to be using limewire because the share the music!

no only use it for music.. if you do you'll get hacked for sure, use torrents but make sure theres comments saying that you can actually use it without viruses. stay far away from limewire unless you're a mac user.
Screw you Mike. Un-necessary.
Absolutely. Be careful in what you download and always scan downloaded files with an anti-virus to lessen your risk of infection. Most anti-virus programs support scanning ZIP archives.
It is completely legal to download songs videos, etc. from the free limewire or any other version of limewire.
The default location is C:\downloads. You can set the download directory at Tools>Options>Directories. You can also right-click the torrent in BitComet and select "Open Directory" to see where the content is.
NO! some people say they don't get viruses but eventually they do.a bunch of my friends tried using it, and a few got viruses rightaway, but others didn't get them until a few months. The virus goesthrough your whole system and completely crashes your computer. Allmy friends had to get new computers...
Most of the time nothing. Depends on where you go. Sometimes techs will remove it for your safety. Other times who cares, it's your computer you're infecting. Mostly the worst stuff that can get you into trouble is child pornography and things of that nature. Most techs don't care too much about...
It's not always illegal. It depends on whether or not the music is in the 'public domain', or has been freely given by the composer. Think of it this way. You have a brainstorm of an idea for an invention that EVERYONE will want. All you need to do is figure out how to mass-produce it, get some...

Get songs legitimately.
Some video distribution sites use automated matching systems (such as YouTube's ContentID) to discover and block infringing material; other sites rely on humans to discover and block infringements, and are therefore much, much slower to notice.

Answer . There are multiple possibilities, however the chief two reasons would be: 1) You are using a CD player that does not recognize CD-R or CD-RW media; try the disc in another player. 2) You are burning an "mp3 CD" and not an "Audio CD". Discs burned in mp3 (or data mode) are different...

Because companies don't take it seriously unless someone other than themselves is benefitting.

The crackdown comes when you download that song and use it in your YouTube video...
Yes. Limewire downloaders are still getting busted for theft of intellectual property..
Limewire isn't something you "cancel;" it's usually purchased with a one-time fee. if you don't wish to use it, simply uninstall it.

I know what happens you get the file you downloaded j/k Nothing much happens but you could get viruses because it is a sharing system
You can install the Mac version of LimeWire on Mac OS X. (See links below)
After the complete track is downloaded and stored in the Limewire directory, you can right click on the file and select "copy to CD". Also you can insert a blank CD and a dialog will open up on your desktop asking if you want to make either a music CD or a data CD.

Only some do. Only old songs though.
Don't stop believing by Journey is one of the all time most downloaded songs.
Answer . They don't. Limewire is a "Peer-To-Peer" (aka Person to Person / P2P) file sharing program. It is the responibilty of the users of the program to get the copyright holders permission to have the songs on there (In a lot of cases it is the label, not the artist that has the copyright)....
drag the songs from Limewire directly into your iTunes "playlists" (drag & drop).
Limewire is bad for your computer, yes. Think about it. You have a million people posting what they want to. So many people have viruses they don't even know about, and BAM they give it directly to you. Your computer is way slower and it could crash. It's happened before, it's bound to happen again....
From Assumption, most songs on limewire are mp3, and therefore would and SHOULD work 100% on itunes.
When yu download videos from limewire they must be in .mp4 format (not all .mp4's will work due to high resolution) 1. Connect your PSP to your computer with a USB cable 2. Click "View Files" 3. Click "Videos" 4. Then just drag the .mp4 file into the folder.
Limewire is illegal and so are songs that are downloaded off the Internet so I suggest if you have dowloaded a song from the Internet, you should delete it but that's my opinion.
Honest recommendation: if you have dialup, unless it's on a separate phone line - don't try to download anything...it will take forever!! If you want to do any downloading, upgrade your connection to a DSL or Cable; that is the only way to speed it up.
Limewire songs are illegal; don't use them in the first place.
Yes they do and usually they pay a fine of $1200. So don't get caught.
Pretty much everyone downloads songs illegally without ever getting caught.

Many people use LimeWire. I would expect it to be over 1 billion people using LimeWire. (This is just an estimate...no real facts were put into this)
If you have an MP3 player that connect with iTunes, add it to your library, and it will merge with the MP3 player at next connect. If you have direct disk write access (ie - shows up in My Computer as a hard drive) just drag and drop the MP3 file from where Limewire downloaded it into the right...
