it's a weird one is P2P

basically, using P2P programs (kazaa, shareaza, limewire) is NOT illegal, you can use them to transfer uncopywrited/unlicensed files (your OWN music, videos etc), but if you use it to transfer a file that is copywrited/licensed, then you are breaking the law

so, you won't be arrested for having limewire/kazaa/shareaza on your computer, but any licensed/copywrited files you have on your computer can be incriminating

They are all legal, it's the use to which they are put that can be illegal i.e. downloading copyright music.

It's illegal, end of story.

Lime itself is not as others have stated, downloading copyrighted music tracks without paying is.
