After years of file-sharing operation, Limewire, one of the largest sites in file sharing, has finally closed down. Yes guys, Limewire has shut down its operation. Remember the notice when you browse on their site that reads “This is an offical notice that LimeWire is under a court ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software.”, well this is it. The order has finally arrived. The verdict, close operation.
The Lime Group got an injunction issued by the US district court in New York, ordering them to stop distribution and sharing of copyrighted content without authorization from the owner. It’s in part of the anti-piracy campaign and this ends the argument between them and the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).
The Lime Group accepted defeat and will never be involved in any of the file-sharing style of business. RIAA meanwhile is very pleased to have the decision.
