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
