LimeWire Ordered to Shut Down Operations

"A Manhattan U.S. District Court judge has ordered LimeWire to halt the distribution of its file-sharing software because the service is used ""overwhelmingly for infringement,"" reports CNNMoney.com.

LimeWire shut down Wednesday, leaving a notice on its website saying the company ""is under a court-ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software.""

Officials from LimeWire said in a statement, ""While this is not our ideal path, we hope to work with the music industry in moving forward. We look forward to embracing necessary changes and collaborating with the entire music industry in the future.""

CEO George Searle posted a message on LimeWire's website, as well: """"The injunction applies only to the LimeWire product. Our company remains open for business. Our team of technologists and music enthusiasts is creating a completely new music service that puts you back at the center of your digital music experience. We'll be sharing more details about our new service and look forward to bringing it to you in the future."""
