  1. LimeWire is closing its online music store, the LimeWire Store, at the end of the year. The company has also abandoned efforts to launch a new, legal music service that it had spent much of the past year building, according to All Things Digital.

    Now they will go for Ares, then uTorrent, Vuze, then all the other remaining torrent clients. After some months they will notice that people still share songs via Pen Drives, so they will engage a lost war to try to remove them from the market, after several failed attempts they will charge any kind of storage drive like HDD's Blu rays, DVD's CD's since people still can record them easily, frustrated by the non stop songs share they will finally understand that people will always find a way to share songs, artists will understand that even if people share their songs illegaly, they will still go to their concerts, they will still be payed to do commercials/fan items like t shirts/movies soundtracks and a lot of related business!!!
    However they will attack trained ninja monkeys to their CD's...

    Going after Utorrent/vuze or any other torrent client would be like forbidding computers because of frauds/hackers/etc.

    The torrent clients are not illegal, it's some of the materials downloaded with them that are.

    For example, there is nothing illegal or wrong about downloading the latest .torrent of Ubuntu linux.

    I must state this, if there were services like Hulu that were accessable around the world, regardless of what country you lived in. I would not even have a Torrent program. But because companies cannot see reason, I continue to torrent the latest of my favorite shows. This is rather than waiting two years for them to come to my country, after all of the plot twists have been given away.

    Agreed. Although I live in the US. If such services weren't so anti HTPC I'd not torrent either.
