Limewire download

Hi Folks,

Can anyone tell me if it's illegal to download music from Limewire. Someone has sent me this link.

Yeah i think it is.

If one does download music can it be traced to the downloader.

It is illegal to download copyright music and yes, the final destination can be traced as many people who have been fined by the RIAA have found out.

This may seem a stupid question: How is one to tell which is legal or not. Do some of these sites let you know.

Well there should be a disclaimer on the site and Limewire have introduced a popup that appears when you go to download a file that it can't find a liscence for.

'that it can't find a liscence for.' Oh dear, I'm lost. Does this mean that the liscence has expired and can be downloaded and it's copyright free.

I shall stick my neck out and suggest that the vast majority of music on Limewire is under active copyright protection.

rmcquan is correct. If it was written or perormed in the last 75 years it will mostly be that includes the Beatles, Stones etc.

Thanks for warning.
