Court Forces LimeWire Shut Down Of P2P Operations

Court Forces LimeWire Shut Down Of P2P Operations

In a big win for record labels, a judge on Tuesday issued an injunction that will force LimeWire to cease its P2P operation. After today, according to information shared by LimeWire, the company will no longer support or distribute its P2P file-sharing software as the court directed it to disable “the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution functionality, and/or all functionality.” The injunction was issued by the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York.

The company noted that it is “compelled to use our best efforts cease support and distribution of the file-sharing software, along with increased filtering.”

The judge’s decision means LimeWire will not be able to fully leverage its current user base in the launch of the subscription service it is currently working on. “We look forward to embracing necessary changes and collaborating with the entire music industry in the future,” said a company spokesperson.

Today’s ruling continues record labels’ four-year legal battle against LimeWire. In a May summary judgment, U.S. District Court judge Kimba Wood ruled that LimeWire’s owner, Mark Gorton, and its parent company, Lime Group, were guilty of copyright infringement, engaged in unfair competition and induced copyright infringement.

    Hell yeah ! Im a fan of music and im poor but im so glad limewire is out and hopefully rapidshare is NEXT ! The reason we have crap like american idol and Justin Beiber or whatever is because you cant make money on talent anymore. Its all about marketing. There are plenty of talented kids out there that dont persue a career in music because they cant get signed. The industry has no money. Im not a huge fan of rocord companies but this is a good thing. Expect some kick ass music in the near future !
