what is limewire is it similar to kazza and if so is it as bad,as regards to spyware ect

No spyware at all. Excellent p2p prog- in fact possibly the best. Great for swapping holiday videos! ;-)

Probably one of the best I have used. However you still have the "copyright" protection issues and downloading viruses, or files that haven't been labelled correctly.

probably the best recommended out of all p2p software.

I hate to spoil the party but are you aware that downloading copyright material is illegal?

I'm sure that you are but I just wanted to make you aware that it is. Illegal.

It's a p2p program, it's not illegal.

Users may break the law by downloading copyrighted materials, that's their choice.

fantastic, getting better by the day, but, the BPI/RIAA is starting to log activity for users sharing more than 1000 files...

better with FTP or use a proxy when connected ;~)

limewire is a good program ;however it does contain spyware as do most other free p2p sharing programs.

As for the lgallity of downloading, its up to the individual to make that choice.I have no wish to start yet another p2p disscussion here, since there is a current forum for that, where there are many threads regarding this issue.I doubt that there is one person on this forum that has not at one time, done something illegal.

Then don't!

  dogbreath1 22:47 07 Sep 2005

No it doesn't contain spyware! Provided that you download it from click here . Please post details of the specific spyware applications that it contains or withdraw the statement!
