Lime Wire, the P2P, Gnutella & Torrent Client is under a court-ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software. In case you forgot, downloading or sharing copyrighted content without authorization is illegal.



The company says it will comply with a court injunction to turn off “the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution functionality, and/or all functionality” of its software, which remains one of the most popular methods of finding free–and illegal–music on the Web. The company’s moves won’t affect other open source clients that run on the same Gnutella network, like FrostWire.

Meanwhile, LimeWire’s parent company, Lime Group, is prepping a new music service that it says will be legal, and should be due out in a month.

I've never used Slimewire. It seemed like it was virus infested anyway.

Driving over the speed limit is illegal, and kills thousands of people every year.

After we stop that, then we can concentrate on the illegal things that don't kill thousands of people, ok?
