I hate to say this, but I highly doubt there is any legal reprecussions
you can use.
Did you read the User Agreement? I'd be willing to bet that Agreement
states that by using that (kazaa, limewire) program you grant
permission to (Kazaa, Limewire) to install it's third party software,
wether you choose to or not. Sadly, by agreeing to use their software
you're also agreeing to install third party spyware.
This may not be the case, but If i were a company issuing spyware, I'd
be sure to legally
cover my six.
