And about bloody time too. Just heard they got served/slapped with an injunction.

Which I find hilarious.

How about the rest of you?
I'm all for file sharing... but breaking copyrights to the degree that limewire does?
pfffffft.

Limewire was invented for file sharing, file sharing is not illegal we all do it, there is nothing wrong with sharing a music audio tape you made but it is the users who abuse it by uploading/downloading pirated stuff. I saw sue the users too.

Now they've just got to get injunctions for all the other file sharing sites .... China may pose a problem though .... and of course it'll take time for new injunctions to go through the courts to stop all the new file sharing sites that pop up when the likes of Limewire and others get knobbled ...

Good. Although it'll mean less work for the techs. It is/was one hell of an infection vector.

BTW speedy, what happened to the avatar?

While I don't file share I have been sorely tempted as I can't download music in .FLAC which I would like to as .MP3 for music in the house sucks

Interesting, as FrostWire have just released a version for Android. Wonder how long before FrostWire is taken out too!

Maybe they might come back re branded/paid format, like Napster (http://music.napster.com) (Their new site).

I'm all in favour of any site that allows me to download one music track at the expense of having to download/purchase a whole CD of 21 other tracks of rubbish - sans trojans, viruses etc of course :)

iTunes doesn't always unfortunately. I wanted to purchase a song, Last Train Home by the Lost Prophets. It's not a new song, a few years old in fact, but it was only available at that time as part of the whole album. It's the only song of theirs that I really liked. Didn't wanna fork out $22-odd for it...

Open Notepad paste in the following

Limewire sucked clogged up with illegal sh*t. Vuze is so much better.

Limewire was fine providing you scanned downloaded files before opening/playing them.

Why all the fuss and BS about it?

I like file sharing sites, certainly helps me get my music out, granted its for free, but never liked limewire, too many horror stories to even venture on their for me.

Likewise, I too used their services and never had any issues.

Maybe I was doing it "right" :) :)

My kids used it all the time, even after I have thrown a wobbly when hit with viruses and trojans.
As fast as I removed it they downloaded it down again.
