LimeWire Shuts Down After Losing Court Battle With The RIAA | TorrentFreak
Yep. But this sets a dangerous precedent.
so if you have limewire installed will it not work now or something?
Yes, If their P2P network is shut down, it will no longer work!
Long live torrents!
I don't know if they realize this but there's countless P2P sharing methods. All they seem to do is target the big one at the time. Every time they kill one, three more pop up. Limewire was so bloated with viruses two years ago it's a wonder it's still used anyways.
I'm more concerned about the Legal Precedent it sets. It makes it ten times easier now to shut down other P2P sharing options.
Glad I buy then
the comments at the bottom of that article are cracking me up
"wait.... limewire was still around?" lol
it was overloaded with spyware anyways, i'll keep sticking to torrents
Stopping P2P sharing is like telling people not to kill each other
People still use Limewire?
I'm as surprised as you
That site has such a terrible rep - you'd want to <3 PC viruses to use it
This was my favourite:
There are countless alternatives so I'm not too worried.

Alert me when something big happens...
Remember how ___--__-----earth shattering it was when Napster was shut down
Never used Limewire in my life. EVER. I stick to SLSK. A great community comes along with it too!
agreed. First Napster, then limewire took over. There are plenty of options out there, and double agreed on the virus thing. It's why I stopped using limewire in the first place.
how good are these sites for movies. I get all my music off youtube rippers nowadays, but I'm looking for movie options.
P2P sucks. I prefer to browse the forums that link to download sites like Megaupload, Rapidshare, hotfile, etc...
Long live the PirateBay!
+1 Newsgroups > all
I really only use torrents on rare older stuff.
TPB has its fair share of viruses too.
Kickasstorrents for me
Limewire was terrible and loaded with spyware and crap you don't want. I am shocked that people still used it and are upset at its going away. lol
