Default limewire music sharing

is www.limewire.com illegal ? this music sharing site has everything for free but a site called www.zapshares.com says otherwise and that people have been court ordered to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for music sharing , most people are on lime wire unaware that they are doing anything illegal then get caught out like hey hang on what the hell

my understanding of it is that if you're using it for your own personal use then no but for instance if you are using it and selling it or using it publicly then yes it is. Just what my understanding is but I'm not 100% sure.

then why does this site continue to operate why havnt they shut it down ? its like saying smoking causes death and the government knows about it but they continue to allow it to be sold . from reading that zapshares site from what i understand you can download it but you have to have the sharing feature in the program turned off , so immeditaly after downloading a song you need to quickly click on it in your library to unshare ?

There still running because Limewire is a file sharing system. People upload the songs and movies and games and stuff.

Using Limewire, or any other file sharing type software, to download copyrighted music is against the law, regardless if it's for personal use or for resale of the music. RCU fully supports all copyrights and further discussion of using Limewire, or others, to download any copyrighted material is against our Community Rules.



is www.limewire.com illegal ?



The original questioned has been answered so I'm closing this thread down.
