Judge shuts down file-sharing site Limewire

I guess people still used Limewire but I stopped many years ago when it became infected with viruses and a bunch of crap but it was the sh*t when it first came out. The music industry still dropped the ball on this because they had the first opportunity to use this technology and they balked and basically self destructed and will probably never recover.

Newser) – File-sharing site LimeWire has been effectively killed off by a court order. A federal judge has issued an injunction ordering the service to permanently disable its software and to end the sharing of unauthorized music files, the Wall Street Journal reports. The popular site was found liable for copyright infringement on a “massive scale” six months ago.

The Recording Industry Association of America, which filed the copyright complaint, will now seek damages likely to exceed $1 billion.

    True Indeed, I was HS when I first heard/used LW the extensive network that it created through P2P made it in my opinion a true information highway even tho people used it to dl music it had untapped potential.
