MP3 Torpedo is a fork of the very popular LimeWire Gnutella client. The purpose of MP3 Torpedo is to keep and maintain the freedoms that LimeWire may be forced to withdraw.
LimeWire has been considering an alternative path to keep them out of any legal situations they could be forced into. From what we understand, LimeWire intends to implement a DRM filtering technology into their client. If LimeWire ever decides to implement this DRM technology, we will be prepared to remove it from our code and distribute the client under our own branding.
However, we will continue supporting the LimeWire client development. MP3 Torpedo, although very much like LimeWire, will never offer a paid version or a subscription service for the download or use of the MP3 Torpedo application.
