One of Arizona-based criminal attorneys claimed that LimeWire was liable for creating more sex offenders than any other website or application out there. That’s why, he pointed out, everyone should be happy that this dangerous service has been shut down.
Only a month ago the U.S. District Judge issued an injunction, forcing P2P service called LimeWire to stop all of its operations related to file-sharing. However, since then there were many debates on its effects. For example, the RIAA called the service’s shutdown a considerable step in the bright future of online music. However, most of the former P2P users were amazed that someone still even uses the application.
Meanwhile, the rest of the audience points out that there are hundreds of alternatives today. Their point has been largely emphasized after an unknown team of developers introduced their own version of “LimeWire Pirate” application, making it absolutely free and removing all the limitation out of the best working LimeWire version.
Now some Arizona-based criminal attorney is expressing his own opinion on LimeWire’s closure. He believes that the outcome should be welcomed by the application’s former users. However, he underlined a reason different from the chance to face copyright infringement charges – his point of view is that the LimeWire is liable for possession and distribution of kids’ porno. The attorney is sure that many users could “accidentally” download the child porno content which might have been mislabeled as something else.
The attorney explains that people can go on looking for some legal content like music video and run across something saying, “pthc,” which actually means “pre-teen hardcore”, but few users understand this abbreviation. So many may follow the link and “accidentally” download and share kids’ porno, becoming flagged for the FBI and local authorities and facing the risk of being arrested and have their computer seized.
Of course, it sounds weird that many users could download kids’ pornography on accident, but the attorney still insists they can, because lots of his former clients proved it. He even claimed that LimeWire was an “insidious” application which should have been closed long ago for creating more sex offenders than any other service ever. Despite his claims, the digital community realizes that any sharing service can only be dangerous if you have no idea what and from whom you are downloading.

|I will say their are assholes out there that mis-label kids cartoons and it turns out to be pedo shit but limewire (making) pedophiles I dont think so. Their are assholes out there plain and simple, did they band together and use it as a tool, I'm sure. They also use chatrooms and all sorts as well. Let us point out that most of the pedo files out there were government hosts looking for a bust or to just profile.|

|Hey, I'm new here, but Limewire actually had a few cases of people downloading child porn(labeled different names.) Some was mislabeled, other stuff was added without you knowing. It was in the news, and a lot of people complained that they had accidentally downloaded child stuff and had no idea how to get it off their computers.|
