MPAA sues LimeWire, starts digging at their grave

LimeWire gets sued by the MPAA, even when they don't exist anymore

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Feb 7, 2012 10:23 am

Considering LimeWire has been dead for quite sometime now, after the RIAA settled with LimeWire last year to the sweet tune of $105 million, Twentieth Century Fox, Viacom, Disney, Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. now want some of that tasty LimeWire blood.

First up, we need to consider, its not like LimeWire had $105 million in cash laying around, so these lawsuits are nothing but praise for the MPAA/RIAA to show off "we sued a company for pirating!" but what actually gets done about it? People are sued, but its like taking blood from a stone. The stone has no blood, LimeWire has no cash. Why sue?

 

The complaint, published by Courthouse News reads:

 

The illegality of LimeWire has been fully and finally adjudicated by the Court. In a related case, Arista Records LLC v. Lime Group LLC ...the court found defendants liable for engaging in and facilitating massive copyright infringement.

 

The complaint lists 53 infringed works including shows such as South Park and Family Guy, as well as movies such as Avatar, Shrek and Harry Potter.
