If you download music off LimeWire but do not share it could you still get into trouble or be sued?

Yes, I believe the authorities still have the right to sue you because you have illegally downloaded(copied) music which goes against the copyright laws. Though, the good news is that authorites seem to only be trying to get hold of the people that have gigs and gigs of songs on their computers not the average joe with only a few.

Legally though, I would still recommened you use services such as iTunes to get music legally.

Hope this is helpful

It's not illegal to pirate anything, its illegal to sell or distribute it. using limewire you are already distributeing it by seeding and you can not turn it off. If you use bitcomet you have the option of turning off the seeding by reduceing your download speed. so either break the law or wait 3 weeks for a 20 meg file to download, your choice

yeh true

If people are using LimeWire to download songs illegally, then there is a chance they may get arrested if caught. To stay away from trouble, it is best to purchase music.

Limewire itself is legal, but downloading music off it for free is not.

dont do lime wire...its illegal ____ The software Limewire, isn't itself illegal. You will not get into trouble simply by having it in your computer. What may get you into trouble is the programs/music you download using it. You are free to download NON copyrighted material or anything in the public domain. You legally cannot download copyrighted material. And yes you can install Limewire if you are running Vista.

Limewire and file-sharing services are legal. You can download music for free from the service but you should not download copyright protected music, as that is illegal.

when you download music from limewire it automatically goes to a folder in MyDocuments called Limewire. In your music player or Itunes or whatever you have open the limewire files there and then sync to your mp3

I would use frostwire or limewire, I mainly use limewire to download music.

Number one way: First download limewire. Then pick songs you want to download on limewire. After that download itunes. After that your music should be on itunes. You have to make sure your ipod is on windows format. Then you import the music on itunes to music or some other file on itunes. And there you have it free music. Yay! Number two way: You download itunes first and then limewire and the rest is the same.
