    I was watching the news last night and a local girl's mother got a letter from the RIAA and was being sued 261 thousand dollars because her daughter was sharing 368 songs on limewire.

    But I am not sharing any folders from limewire, and I mainly download from torrentleech for movies, blackcats-games for games, and limewire for music, i also have peerguardian and a secure wi-fi connection and a router.

    How safe am I

    You are pretty safe, just dont use anything like Limewire, Emule etc. anymore, stick with BT.

    You should also check out Rav009's most excellent guide on how to stay safe with BT.

    Another thing you should consider is signing up on a private tracker :)

    Try not to worry, just leech, and seed only what you have downloaded.

    blackcats and torrentleech are private trackers, I only use limewire to find individual songs
