LimeWire is not illegal?

Looks like you people are kinda ignorant. Files that are under COPYRIGHT (THUS COPYRIGHT FROM ARTISTS - MUSIC) are ILLEGAL. P2P (peer to peer - LimeWire, eMule, Shareaza ecc. ecc.) are illegal as well because all the files in there are under copyright.

MegaUpload, RapidShare, 4shared ecc. are illegal only if you upload stuff under copyright (music is one of those).

Downloading is fine, its the sharing part that is where the legality comes into question.

no limewire is not illegal. Since they dont host any files. You said it your self: its peer to peer.
Its those who share and download who's illegal. The company behind limewire dont host any files themselves.

Limewire would be illegal if people could upload files under copyright to THEM. And then they would make the files available for download. But its not like that

People only use limewire to search for files and connect to each other. That doesnt make limewire illegal.

Or are you saying that The Pirate Bay is illegal? Or utorrent?


But who cares if its illegal or not? If you guys are that worried just go through an anonymous server. You'll be untraceable. If you know how to do it that is.

In sweden we also have organizations that pays your fine if you're convicted for filesharing.

No its not illegal. P2P is file sharing so you are supposed to download stuff from there right? Limewire is definitely not something which I will call illegal

I still think it's illegal. Just like when someone prefers to be republican rather than democratic, someone can have different opinions.
