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.
