Torrents are much better and safer in my opinion, there are lots of torrent programs like UTORRENT,BITLORD,AZURUES.

I shouldn't have posted about illegal things, I forgot about copyright laws, but thanks for your answers.

True, but Limewire is easier to use. You just have to watch what you download, and ZIP files on Limewire are a no-no.

I use limewire only for music. Just because its easier to use than a torrent when it comes to music. Everything else I need I torrent.

After a couple thousands songs and movies I've downloaded, I forgot what illegal means. Warez files are good too, if you don't mind the millions of pop ups and porn that's on there. But Bearshare V6 says that they're 100% legal. You have to go through the registration process though

I hate to sound like a smart ass, but buying in a store is better. You know it's virus free, and if the feds come knocking on your door you have the receipt.

feds dont kick down the doors very often. usually only if an American server is hosting illegal files but 99% of illegal downloads originate from other country's

Limewire isnt illegal though, it just depends on how you use it... and torrents...

I always download my music with torrents. They're usually complete and of very good quality. Limewire is like a box of suprises; half the time you don't know what you're getting.

Aren't torrents really slow though? Because you are constantly uploading and downloading at the same time.
