No, you can select not to share your files with other users. Go to your library, right click on the files you don't want to share, and select "Stop Sharing File."

But if everyone in limewire wont share files, gnutella community dies, and limewire would be useless, as there will be NO files to download because nobody shares.

Think about this: you want to download, so means you expected others to share, yet you refused to share yourself. So selfish!

Using Limewire is not illegal. Limewire is a P2P file sharing utility. If you share files which are copyrighted and without a licence or permission then that is illegal.

LimeWire is a legal file-sharing program. Using it to share or download copyrighted files such as music, is illegal and violates the LimeWire Terms of Service.

Yes. LimeWire can only share files while it is running.

you have to share limewire with your itunes. In itunes/limewire, share the files, and the songs will automatically go onto your itunes. Then do what you would normally.

limewire is illegal no matter what. However, in most countries it is much more difficult to monitor and prosecute users who do not share their files. It would be wise to turn off the sharing mode in limewire.
