Several days passed after an unknown team of developers presented their own version of the world’s known application, claiming to have removed all the dependencies on the servers of LimeWire LLC. Those days seemed to be a tough time for a LimeWire Inc. itself, as it issued a request to everyone using their brand name and software for the purpose of sharing copyrighted files cease and desist from doing that.
Apparently, LimeWire Inc. was not the last one to learn about the highly discussed release of the innovative LimeWire “Pirate Edition”. Of course, the company wasn’t amused by the fact in the least. As for today, the company is still under the injunction issued last month by the country’s District Judge, who has ordered LimeWire Inc. to stop all of its operations, including uploading, downloading, searching, file-sharing and the rest of the file distribution functionality of all its famed file-sharing applications.
The most recent injunction followed the company’s loss to the Recording Industry Association of America at the end of this spring, where the same judge had determined the LimeWire had committed copyright violation, as well as engaged in unfair competition, and facilitated the commitment of copyright violations.
Although the LimeWire Inc. complied with the injunction, it took no longer than 2 weeks for a so-called “horde of piratical monkeys” to develop and distribute an entirely new LimeWire “Pirate Edition,” which rendered the attempts of both LimeWire and the RIAA simply meaningless.
The secret team of developers proudly announced that they had removed all dependencies on the official servers, disabled all remote features, unbundled the Ask toolbar, as well as activated all the options of the LimeWire PRO entirely for free.
Of course, everyone understood that LimeWire would inevitably get aware of the fresh “Pirate Edition”. So it did and finally decided to put a statement on its website, containing a general warning where they ask that secret team of developers to “cease and desist” from exploiting the company’s trademark for the purpose of uploading or downloading the copyrighted content.
However, so far there weren’t a word from the Recording Industry Association of America on the question of new “cage-free” build of LimeWire having been introduced to the world.

|limewire was a good program to have, some people can afford music cds or dvds because most of the time the dvd or cd was really lame.|
|I liked Limewire cause there were single hard to find songs that I could download. There is another program that is and looks like Limewire. It's called Frostwire. You can google it and see for yourself.|
|Also another limewire-esk type of program i used to use called morpheus. its been years since ive used it, when i first used it it was great, then they updated it to try and block copyrighted songs though u could still find them if u looked hard enough, it was just hard to find what u were looking for cuz of title masking to avoid being blocked for copyright issues|

|I can't believe people even still use Limewire and any other program like it anymore. Those damn places are so full of viruses and god knows what else.|
|I downloaded FrostWire the same day I got rid of LimeWire, seems to be working just as good.|

|Like I said it's good for hard to find songs especially when you are looking for just a single song. I don't worry about viruses. I've resurrected my computer from viruses numerous times. So far Frostwire has worked just fine for me. Haven't come across a virus yet.|
