My son thinks that if I install this program he will be able to download all music for free. Is he correct?

yes he is correct i use it but the downside is your downloading files from other peoples computer and maybe harmful to your computer only use it for music nothing more

Make sure you have a good Anti-Virus+Spyware programs on your computer first,Not used it for a few years,And yes you could download free music on it then,I dont know about now,Liable to pick up some nasties ,so you have to be carefull.

and your son downloads copyright-protected music files he will be breaking the law, and if he's detected he may be prosecuted and fined. If the internet connection is in your name you'll be the one to be prosecuted.

My advice is that you don't have anything to do with Limewire, or any other music or film filesharing systems.
