How can people get caught using LimeWire?

Every computer in the world (connected to the internet, that is) has a special "number" called an "IP Address" sortof like a phone number, or physical address. When your computer is connected to a p2p program (in this case, limewire) People you download music from, and also people who download music from you, can see your IP Address. Once they have that address you can go to the internet and pin-point the exact location of the IP Address (your physical address) Thus, finding you, thus considering yourself...."Caught" if you don't want to get caught (probably a good thing) then either, 1. Dont download off of limewire 2. Invent a way to block your IP Address.....or 3. ....DONT DOWNLOAD!!! or 4. Go to websites like YouTube and find the song you want, then RECORD it yourself...and then dont put it in a shared folder that other people have access to. Actually, you a very very very slim chance of ever getting caught if you: 1. create a new folder, and select limewire to share ONLY that folder 2. create a new folder, and select limewire to download ONLY to that folder. 3. throw a bunch of random stuff in the folder to be shared (like make a bunch of word documents with gibberish or something that isn't illegal to share) It is still illegal to download pirated music, but you likely won't get in trouble. Only people who share the stuff regularly get caught doing anything.

Why wont iTunes play music while LimeWire can?

iTunes is a service provided by Apple which enables you to find artists, songs, movies, podcasts, and tv shows. iTunes lets you preview songs instead of playing them because if you were able to play the songs whenever you wanted to there would be no point of buying them. That said, iTunes lets those who possibly intend on buying media preview what they may buy. The LimeWire store (and most other legitimate download stores such as Amazon) operate in the same way. If you are downloading music with the limeWire software then the chances are that it is being provided illegally and you are leaving yourself open to prosecution for doing so. To quote LimeWire's own advice: Your activities on peer-to-peer networks such as LimeWire may be monitored by copyright owners. Violation of copyright laws may subject one to substantial money damages. Copyright owners have sued thousands of people for infringement of copyright over peer-to-peer networks.
