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.
I'm sorry but Limewire doesnt work any more. It was shut down. If you want something like Limewire you should download Frostwire. It is pretty much the exact same thing. To get Frostwire just google it and go to the site and download it its that simple :)
  I assume you are trying to load music onto your walkman, not the limewire program. The steps for loading the music would be to plug your walkman into your computer then open windows media player. Find your mp3 player and click the sinc button. You drag music files into the area corresponding...

try going to your media player .in the top right hand corner look for a dropdown button click on it and it will take you to where to download files. you will be able to search your whole computer for all music. hope this helps
Yes because it can apply you with free songs.
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 on  the computer, and import the saved music from your computer to the  iPod.
There are usually 4 trillion to 10 trillion illegal songsdownloaded each year, while 4 billion songs are legally downloaded.wow.
  Yessssssssssssssss   Nooooooooooooooooooooo Of coarse not.
In short: Yes, but. However, "Making unauthorised copies of  copyrighted music recordings is against the law and may subject you  to civil and criminal liability. A civil law suit could hold you  responsible for thousands of dollars in damages. Criminal charges  may leave you with a felony...
I don't see why it wouldn't.
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.
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.
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!

It is completely legal to download songs videos, etc. from the free limewire or any other version of limewire.
NO! some people say they dont get viruses but eventually they do. a bunch of my friends tried using it, and a few got viruses right away, but others didn't get them until a few months. the virus goes through your whole system and completely crashes your computer. all my friends had to get new...
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...
Downloading free and paid for music is legal in the UK. Downloading  pirated music is illegal.
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.
No, file sharing is against Apple policy. You can although get Limewire songs from your computer to your iTouch with iTunes.
when the download is done open the limewire window, right-click on the file you finished downloading and click "open containing folder".
limewire downloads viruses
  == 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...

  Yes. Limewire downloaders are still getting busted for theft of intellectual property.    
  == Answer ==   Unless you are paying, you do it illegally.         ==================     A real answer is search for a song and double click on the one you want  
  == Answer ==   no, sorry, just import the music into your itunes.
If the material is not protected by copyright (e.g., it is in the public domain, or is a work of the federal government), it is legal to download.
yes.it gave me a virus called yontoo. i got it by playing a game called bloons battles multiplayer
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.
i need help i need to talk to some one about limewire
To download a file you need to double click it then at the bottom of the screen it comes up with a box showing how long it has until it finishes the download and goes into your iTunes or other mediaplayer.
  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.
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.
Frostwire or Bearshare Limewire alternative.
You search for a song, then you double click it. Then, when it is finished downloading, open up iTunes and plug in your iPhone and drag the song from the download section (bottom) of limewire and drag it to music section of your iPhone. Hope this helped!
about 3.56% of the population uses limewire
  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)

yes, downloading songs in limewire is free unless you get limewire pro. But most of what you download will be illegal. Because you have not paid for it you are stealing it.
Answer . i think the word "illegal" gives it away
Yes, but be careful
  my opinion: i believe it is illegal and that there is a possible punishment such as 5 years in jail or paying up to 500k. that is what i heard. not sure if it is true.
No, it should not. But that's not because of the internet (which is just a medium for sharing), but because of the copyright itself. Remove the selfish copyrights and enjoy Creative Commons. Then sharing would be promoted, not stifled for a profit. Unfortunately, that's not how it is, so if you get...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4l8wnKy8y4 It's by a Portuguese band called [ reckless ]. I really like the chord progression in this song. Have a nice day.
Yes very many before you download make sure its the right type of file and approximate size (Mb)
you just drag the song from limewire to itunes
The chances depend on how much the cops wants you to go down, but it's not very likely.
well i would assume you would go to the directory that limewire saved the mp3s or wmas and you do whatever you do to get any other songs into your zune because the files that limewire downloaded arent special or proprietary they are just plaiin mp3s and wma files.
Yes, Find out where your tunes are saved and drag them in to Itunes whilst its open.
    You can accesses it by clicking finder. Click Macintosh HD > Go to users >Click Limewire >Click saved > Drag and drop the file you want to your Desktop or anywhere you want.

Limewire was created by Limewire LLC on May 29, 2000.
Why is it illegal download? Because whatever your downloading is copyrighted, so if you pay for it or not paying for it, it's still illegal. Paying for it is worst because not only your downloading copyrighten files your purchasing them, witch is distribution and breaking the copyright law....
Yes its very good for downloading music and movies and the newer version is very good but make sure you have anti-virus software.
I'm pretty sure it doesn't. I used limewire to get my songs on my ipod touch and it was free.
  == Answer ==   You may have the wrong user name and password or your pop up blocker may be blocking it. YOu may have to set up port forwarding. It should tell you how to do this in the help for that program.
it's quite simple, in three easy steps.. all you do is : 1: have itunes and limewire open together so you can see both of them at the same time. 2: select the songs you'd like on limewire ( to select more than one click one of the songs and press Shift and hold it while you use the arrow selecting...
