i have not used limewire in about a month or so, but it looks like its time to find a replacement P2P client.

I have always used Frostwire. Like Limewire but faster, and free.

What? I didn't know people still used limewire. I like my P2P downloading a little more anonymous. Bittorrent is the way to go. Makes downloading those Linux distros much faster.

modern music isn't even worth ripping off much less paying for.

I'll stick with my what's already in my CD collection. iPODs suck! CD Walkman baby! :D

Good riddance, that service was full of crap. Besides, everyone switched to torrents years ago.

You can put your CDs onto your iPod. Less crap to carry around and you don't have to worry about them getting scratched/lost, and the music wont ever skip. Not to mention you get much more battery life.

The problem with the RIAA and their British counterparts is that they've gone after idiotic cases. I recall them going after a woman that worked in a grocery store stocking shelves who would sing while she did it. They wanted royalties for it...

Sandra Burt, 56, who works at A&T Food store (a British supermarket) in Clackmannanshire, UK was told by organization representatives that she would likely face fines for lost royalties for her "performance".

Luckily in that case, the public got so angry the RIAA had no choice but to back down.

I haven't used such outdated technology in so many years :|

I'm kinda glad it got taken down, there was just way too many fake file and other internet trash on that P2P program.

Copyrights also aren't being used the way they were intended. They were never meant to prevent people from making personal copies of works. Copyright was invented to prevent people from profiting off the work of others.
