And movies and CDs would definitely cost that little... if they were blank. People don't seem to understand they're paying for the content, not the actual disc alone, which baffles me.

Do you expect them to make an album or make a film and not expect a profit? Just because some yahoo can't afford $15 for a CD? Please. It's not that much.

You know you can actually pay for these kind of programmes? *points to the above post*

I'm not sure what kind of "benefits" you would get for paying though..

I like Limewire, I use it quite alot, and I haven't got any viruses from it, either. :uhm: I first heard about it because practically everyone in my grade had it on their school computers. I don't mind downloading the songs at all, its just the movies, games, and other stuff like that. I mean, you could even download a working version of GTA:Vice City from it (didn't have any audio though). Our school eventually made us take it off our (school) computers, because there would be so many people downloading songs at once, it would slow down the school's network. :chuckle: After that I just downloaded and installed it on my computer at home. :D

I'm not one for advertising but eMule is a good one to use (won't post link), pretty simple to use and downloads from the amount of sources it can find for the program you need ;)

Folks, I believe I said this thread is only going to stay open if you discuss LimeWire and programs like it, not what you download. Don't abuse the trust I placed in you.

If you download stuff on a P2P program we don't want to know about it, so don't tell us.

Monster_UserEven more strange. Limewire is Open Source. So you can get a "Full" version for free. Not sure if it will have all the features, but it is not a demo.

I do not know if I misunderstand you, as I don't really know much about these things (what's Open Source?), but actually for the 'real' version you do have to pay. With that I mean Limewire PRO. I looked at the Limewire-site, and you get a list of advantages of Limewire PRO (like; 'better results', 'more sources'). And you have to pay $18.88 for it.

And with demo I did not mean it only had a limited amount of features, but I just meant it wasn't the 'full' version. Well.. yeah.. that's it.

I'm fully aware that content is what we're paying for, but they can still make a high enough profit margin with reduced prices. Whilst $15 might not be much to SOME people, to the others it very much will be (I'm thinking students here, who are most likely to be the culprits for using p2p). Also, if you do the conversion rate, our CD's and DVD's are more like £12/£12-£20 at R.R.P so very few places will sell it cheaper.

It's like a loop hole becuase Limewire does not 'track' who downloads the file or what download it is. So therefore Limewire is not liable.

NusentinsainoI use limewire a lot... Never for pirating though. It's pathetic to pirate movies/DVD's because I am a film lover and pirating is stealing. Downloading songs... I admit that I am guilty for that. I have lowered my habit into downloading so many songs though.

It's pathetic to download a movie but its ok to download songs?:rolleyes:
