R.I.P. LimeWire

Post date: Oct 27, 2010 4:49:38 PM

In a recent turn of events that should not be shocking to anyone familiar with the service, LimeWire has been ordered by a federal judge to shut down due to "copyright infringement on a massive scale."

I don't even know if people still use this or not, but in the past it seemed like a great way to find that new R. Kelly song you didn't want to pay for, along with the multiple viruses that would tag along and destroy your computer because your antivirus software was out of date. Nevertheless, it looks like those who still relied on LimeWire will have to go elsewhere for illegal downloading activities.
