A slap in the face for LimeWire by a court of the United States
Four years ago, the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) filed suit in U.S. courts against LimeWire, accusing it of smuggling material protected by law. After a lengthy hearing, the court issued its final decision, which is a slap in the face for known file sharing service.
The judge Kimba Wood accepted the allegations RIAA, as seen from the grounds of conviction. Wood mentions that the creators of LimeWire really help users to violate copyright laws.
The fine will be too heavy and will probably exceed three million euros imposed by the Swedish justice on Pirate Bay a year ago.
