They need to call Uncle Ben Bernanke, chairman of the US Federal Reserve, for their $75 trillion. He can print it up for them with a few keystrokes. He does for all the other major corporations anyway.

A step in the right direction

You guys are like a year late bro, limewire got shut down a long time ago. Unless you have a specific version of limewire it doesn't work. And if you downloaded any songs from it you're most likely going to be fined $3,000 for each song you downloaded, and don't think they can't find it just because you've deleted it.


God young people are dumbasses nowadays. Use a usb harddrive, download as much song as you want. Pour bleach on said harddrive, burn it, then throw it away. COFFEE cannot work on something that is totally and completely trashed.

Technically this trial isn't even over yet, they had court sessions earlier THIS MONTH to decide on what the damages are. I think they still haven't settled it. And I'm not sure where you've heard that Limewire has been shut down, but you couldn't be more mistaken. Last I heard, Limewire has been working on a new subscription program, that is Cloud-based, for quite some time. As if they could ever shut down the Gnutella network. It's WAY bigger than Limewire. Limewire is just a head of one of billions of needles that make up the network. You're telling me they shut that down simply because Limewire's old program is "gone"? Ever heard of Frostwire? Think of it as the Limewire equivalent of what Kazaa Lite used to be to Kazaa.

I would wager that not many users will be getting fined or having charges pressed against them, as well. Maybe some more severe cases where the person was acting as a HUB (sharing files) for illegal sharing, but that's about it. You have no idea how big Limewire was. They don't even have enough money or resources to hunt down everyone and search their computers for evidence that might not even be there. This isn't about people sharing music/programs illegally. It's about their money. And they aren't about to waste all of the money they're getting from this case on pennies.

If you would have but read a little on the matter, you would know that there is hardly ANY talk of prosecuting ANY users of Limewire. In fact, Limewire has been taking the FULL beating of it's users illegal activities. The prosecution was actually trying to hold Limewire responsible for EACH individual act of illegality that it's users have performed. Meaning that Limewire was going to be sued in place of the individual users, but for the same grand total. Luckily for them, they are only being sued for a single award per each infringed work. Apparently the number of direct infringers will be a factor in deciding how much will be paid from each infringed work.

So, basically your whole post was wrong or inaccurate. You can still use Limewire. They ARE still a company. You CAN safely delete data so it can never be recovered. And chances are VERY likely that 99% of all Limewire users will go un-effected by all of this. In the grand scheme of things... NOBODY will be getting fined $3,000+ for this. You spread fear like FOX News. :P

Could probably just toss it into a microwave. >.>

In that case that money won't have any worth anymore :P


Precisely. ;)
