Hey I just have a crazy question, I have gotten this cool P2P program called LimeWire and I just wanted to know if it is legal. I think the program is legal but I want to make sure i'm downloading pirated stuff so does anyone know how to do that?

Technically, Limewire isn't illegal, but the fact that it distributes copyrighted material makes it illegal.

But, we shouldn't discuss P2P programs of any kind on this forum, due to this:

Warez & Piracy Requests for warez and warez links will be treated as piracy. This includes requests or provision of CD keys, cracks, serials, and pirated software or movies of any kind. The promotion of peer-to-peer client software is also strictly forbidden. Any member found to be breaching this guideline, will be banned from Gaming Forums permanently.

So is it legal if you just use to download non-copyrighted things, or is it illegal no matter what? Everyone at my school must be crimanals because they use it download full songs and stuff. I think someone should lock this forum before it leads to someone getting banned.
