Is downloading from Limewire and torrent sites illegal?
Yep, downloading anything for free without the creator’s permission is called piracy, and it’s illegal. I’m pretty sure that they don’t send people to jail anymore though, because half of our country’s taxpayers would be sitting in jail, NOT paying taxes. I’m pretty sure that if the government is concerned enough about your downloading, then you can get your computer confiscated and wiped. If you’re paranoid about it, I think if you pay the $20 a year or however much it is to Limewire, then they take responsibility if you’re ever sued.
