What's the legal issues on these? I thought lime-wire was illegal. And what about FrostWire? Legal or illegal?

Oh. So downloading music is illegal on them correct? Or just other copyrighted programs that are illegal to download?

Another question. Supposing downloading music is illegal. Would it be legal on LimeWire Pro as you paid for the program? In another words, does the company pay for rights to download music so they can allow those who pay for their product to download it legally?

I s'pose that's why Avast has a built-in P2P Shield.

The program itself is legal.

No. Downloading music on any P2P program is illegal, whether you pay for the SOFTWARE or not...you are not paying for the music. The only places downloading music is illegal is if it is not copyrighted (which in this day and age is virtually all music) or if you PURCHASE the songs on iTunes, Amazon..etc etc.

You pay for LimeWire Pro to get them to undo restrictions on bandwidth and ads. That's all.

And yes, downloading any copyrighted material is illegal in most all places...although, I have yet to find someone who doesn't have P2P that doesn't use it for illegal activities...

I wouldn't trust Avast with any computer IMHO.
