    Default Limewire Service Shut Down

    LimeWire file-sharing service shut down by US court

    October 26, 2010 -- Popular online file-sharing service LimeWire was shut down by a US federal court on Tuesday following a lawsuit filed by the music industry.

    The move came a little more than five months after a US judge ruled in favor of 13 music companies in a copyright infringement and unfair competition case brought against LimeWire.

    LimeWire.com featured a legal notice on its home page on Tuesday stating it was "under a court-ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software."

    The legal notice linked to the court order from US District Court Judge Kimba Wood ordering the closure of the service.

    LimeWire, After Lengthy Battles, to Shutdown Dec. 31

    7:32 p.m. | Updated LimeWire, the popular music file-sharing service that ran afoul of the music industry, has reached its end. The company said on Friday that it would be shutting down by the end of the year and closing its sole office in New York.

    “As a result of our current legal situation, we have no choice but to wind down LimeWire Store operations,” LimeWire said in a statement. “Despite our dedication and efforts, Dec. 31, 2010, will mark the day when LimeWire Store shuts its virtual doors.”

    After Judge Wood’s injunction in October, LimeWire said it was still hoping to work with the major labels on a new service, but now it has abandoned those plans. A hearing for damages in the major labels’ case against LimeWire is scheduled for January.
