No, you can download it for other stuff too. Like just listening to it on your computer, burning it out into a CD, but that's not truly legal...you can download it onto ipods, mobile phones with a music player too, and I cant think of any other devices lol

Yes, but the RIAA has never sued anyone for downloading, only sharing. -DJ Craig

Limewire Downloads are Illegal - 99.9% of the timeDownloading music or anything else off limewire is both risky and illegal. Music that is shared is copyrighted and most of the time belongs to somebody. Downloading Limewire Pro only gives you faster downloads and better connection and also free updates. I am a Limewire Pro user myself, getting it from sponsored functions. All terms of use are the same Limewire will not be held responsible for your downlading and mistakes. When you download a file always stop sharing it. Some people don't even know what they could be a host to or be sharing.Downloading from Limewire isn't illegal (though this may vary from country to country), however downloading illegal music from Limewire is illegal.Limewire is fine if you have full permissions to share the music/videos etc.. However this isn't always the case. And that's when the problems start.As well as this, people who create virus's, spyware etc know that if you download the latest Madonna song, its illegal. So they will hide their malware inside the latest Madonna song, and now your less likely to complain when your machine gets infected, because you shouldn't have being downloading the "song" in the first place.It is only illegal if you make copies of the downloaded songs.

No, it is not. Limewire does not offer virus protection. The only way I'd go about downloading ANYTHING off of Limewire is if I had good anti-virus software.

No, it is free to download the basic. (I know because a teen babysitter helped me dowload basic limewire this last month on my home PC.) No, But it can if you get caught using it. limewire is illegal and you can get in trouble for it. Limewire says it is legal, But it is only legal to them limewire doesnt use any of the files, just lets them go from one place to another (you can also get pro for nothing by downloading PRO off limewire basic ';,.,;'

First, LimeWire is not illegal to download. It`s just p2p program.Second, all of the songs are not stored in a main host, its shared between the users. If you are downloading song, you are not downloading from the limewire server, you are doing it from users that accepted to share that song.For that, the LimeWire software is legal but it is illegal for the individuals to share copyrighted material such as music, videos and software. LimeWire should only be used for sharing the material that you have created yourself as stated in the LimeWire user agreement....The Program, like all peer-to-peer ("P2P") programs, is capable of being used to share materials that the copyright owner has not authorized be shared. It is unlawful to use the Program to infringe the intellectual property rights of others, or to share, distribute or download others' protected, proprietary and/or confidential information without authorization

No, Limewire and all other P2P services are confidencial. The second computer would only see what the first one is downloading if the first one is downloading directly from the second one.

Yes, just download the Music and use a good program to make a audio CD - not a data CD, because a data CD will not work on CD players, only computers

IN LIMEWIRE YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A MUSIC AND YOU CAN ALSO ERASE MUSIC Improved Answer: Unfortunately I don't know how to do this, but that answer doesn't answer the question. Limewire is a software that is used to download music for free (IT'S ILLEGAL).

User Avatar

By sending only the link from the source , but not downloading whole of the file.

Downloading MusicYes, you are taking something without paying for it, the same as if you took a CD from a store and didn't pay for it, so downloading music online for free is stealing. Not only that, it is also illegal.

User Avatar

Limewire doesn't have any built in detector for that kind of thing, it's job is just to find files that match your search. The only way to be sure you aren't downloading the PC version of Ebola is to use a separate virus scanner and keep the folder you're downloading into quarantined. Scan every file you download for viruses before moving it into your music or video library and setting it free on your hard drive.

Places like limewire that are file sharing sites are legal. However downloading files protected by copyright from sites is illegal. Even if it is only meant for personal use, it is still illegal to download the music without paying the copyright.

User Avatar

Just run the Limewire uninstaller. It won't delete the music. I can't think of any reason that deleting Limewire would delete your music. But if you want to make sure, just copy all of your music onto a different hard drive or a different computer, and then disconnect that hard drive/computer. Or if you only have one computer with one hard drive, you could encrypt your music library. http://www.truecrypt.org you should go to the file on the limewire application and then open my documents in a new window then just drag and drop the files

User Avatar

no not all. only ones that carry viruses like limewire.

User Avatar

Yeah, the only two things you can use to get music for your iPod is iTunes or loading music from a CD onto your computer, then transferring it to your iPod. Avoid file sharing sites like LimeWire because exchanging music without paying royalties to the recording companies is illegal (copyright violation), and some people (even teens!) have been sued for downloading music from these places.

legal sounds.com. There only 9 cents a song.

It is not illegal for anyone to use Limewire. It is simply illegal to download copyrighted files on Limewire, and the only people who may be charged for this is the original downloader. When other Limewire users download the existing file, it is simply called "file sharing," and it is most definetly not illegal. Soooo....no, no one has been prosecuted for using Limewire-just for downloading coyrighted files on to Limewire. If you aren't copyrighting anything, you have not broken the law, and have simply participated in file sharing.

In order to hear the music, you must download it.Downloading copyrighted music is illegal. So yes, you could get sued for "just listening to music."

=== === Downloading music on Limewire, if free music, is completely illegal and against the law. If you are participating in this illegal act, stop immediately, as police could easily track you down and arrest you. Hundreds of adults and teenagers are being arrested because of downloading free music illegally. Music and other files sourced from filesharing networks like Limewire is the most common cause for software corruption on iPods. If you notice your iPod is no longer working correctly (battery not charging, iPod not recognized by computer, songs skipping, etc.), then you may have corrupt software on your iPod. Often, if you're using Windows, the iPod is no longer recognized, so you can't restore it or erase it to fix the problem. If that is the case, find a friend with a Mac or take it to an Apple store and have them restore it for you. Please also note that downloading songs from file sharing services that you don't own the license to (translation: have bought the album or song for already) is copyright infringement, and is not only illegal, it's wrong. Artists deserve to be paid for their work. Paying for software like Limewire doesn't actually mean you have legal rights to the files...only to the software you're using

User Avatar

For starters, chances are that if you're downloading something that's write protected from limewire, it's probably illegal to re-burn it. The only way that it would be legal is if you already own a copy of the music, in which case you could rip and then burn from your own copy of the CD. I'm sorry you thought you had the answer right? or were you just wasting people's time?

LimeWire. It is a free program to download music, though with virus risks. Also note kazzaa, Organizations have fake downloads up (not only in kazza) that track who download what file by IP, although they have NO RIGHT to, at least in the US. You can always try PeerGuardian2 to protect yourself from their connections.

LimeWire is never "full." The music files you download are stored on your hard drive, usually in your Shared folder. Thus, the only limit to the number of songs you can download is the capacity of your hard drive.

If you live in the United States the answer is definitely yes. Other countries may have other rules.http:/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Millennium_Copyright_Act
