R.I.P. LimeWire :(

Limewire, one of the world’s biggest file-sharing websites, has been shut down by a US judge after a four-year legal battle.

In a huge victory for the record industry, New York District Judge Kimba Wood issued a permanent injunction, ordering the service to stop supplying its software and to block the sharing of unauthorised files.  

The 17-page ruling requires LimeWire to ‘disable the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution functionality, and/or all functionality of the software.’

I confess, I download all my music illegally through LimeWire, and my iPod is empty. I crey. 😦 I’m so not paying for each song .. I mean shouldnt they like close down YouTube as well? We can listen to the songs there! Hmph the USA are so uptight!! And I want a replacement to LimeWire .. HELP I’M MUSIC-LESS 😦 Record companies are pissed not the artists, cause the artists get most of their revenue from the concerts and merchandise! Tsk I’m depressed now!
