Peer to peer (P2P) applications like Morpheus, BitTorrent and Limewire can be very difficult to configure for limited sharing. As a result, you might be cited for copyright infringement for sharing files out to the world that you legally own. To prevent this from happening, the best advice is to delete P2P applications from your system. If you must use P2P software, be very careful with its use to stay clear of legal trouble or disclose personal, confidential information to the world. Read more at:
