If you get caught, possibly.
You can get sued by the owner. If they let you off your are LUCKY!
It depends on what sorts of illegal things you are downloading. If you are caught downloading copyrighted music, you can be sued by the RIAA. There won't be any jail time involved, but you could be liable for hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. If you are caught downloading child pornography, you will probably face some serious jail time.
You'll got to prison. Big-Bob will have his way with you bom chicka wah wah.
No, it is still copyrighted by the owner, and or producers no matter what.
not really.. but it depends on what your downloading
Very few. I'd be skeptical about downloading anything that is suspected to be copyrighted software, songs and such. The fines, if caught, are very hefty - in some cases Millions of dollars ... When compared to the $20 initial price, the choice is pretty evident.
Yes Stricly speaking limewire is not an illegal programme as it forces you to sign a disclaimer saying that you will not download copyrighted material. However most people are downloading copyrighted material but also uploading as limewire is a p2p programme (peer2peer). Therefore if you are just downloading and you get caught maybe you will get fined £2 a song, whereas uploading can be upwards of £10000. So what you want to do is get a nice IP blocker or cut your upload speed to 0KBPS. Hope this helped.
Yes just depends what your downloading but it is highly likley that you will NOT get caught. I do not know anyone who has been caught downloading off of Isohunt.com
It is officially for sharing your pictures, videos and music you have made and downloading of the software is legal, and the site claims that there is no spyware added. Howere the downloading of the copyrighted music without payment is illegal, and therefore you perhaps cant entirely trust frostwire. However the chances of you being caught downloading media illegally through frost or limewire are extremly slim.
Yes, it is compatible. Just keep in mind that most material on Limewire is illegal to download. If you are downloading any copyrighted material, and get caught, you will be facing some very hefty fines.
Yes. Don't do it.
The main implication of downloading free music is that if caught by the police and the government, a large fine may imposed upon the person which was caught.
it depends what you are downloading , if it is from an illegal source and should not be downloaded the chances are that you will be caught
The people who are affected by taking copyrighted material is the author, who will not make any money if everyone stole his content, the people who steal the content could get caught and fined for the same amount of money of what they stole. information: DVD Brain
by tracking your IP address
Only if you get caught
When you click on a file you want, your ip address is exposed, so if it turns out that a record company is just seeing who will download their stuff, you can be traced. Once a record company, or another agency, gets your ip address from the p2p program, they can fine you for illegally downloading something that is copyrighted, in some cases you can go to jail.
Illegal downloading is illegal downloading, if you get caught you can get in trouble.
If you are caught by an antiP2P group, such as the RIAA, you will be sued, and considering they will have proof of you downloading/uploading before hand, it is basically a fine. It can range from $3000-$4000 on average I think.
try it find out. it doesn't matter if you don't get caught.
It is theft, which is unethical, and subject to prosecution if you get caught.
its depends on how much you download and you can just get caught out of nowhere!
