    After months of issuing warnings, the music industry finally made good on its threat to file suit against peer-to-peer software company LimeWire.

    A group of music companies, including Sony BMG, Virgin Records and Warner Bros. Records, have accused LimeWire and the company's officers of copyright infringement, according to a federal lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in New York. LimeWire produces software that's often used to create copies of music recordings and then distribute them over the Web.

    The recording industry is asking for compensatory and punitive damages, such as $150,000 for every song distributed without permission.

    That is unfortunate and has left us no choice but to file a lawsuit to protect the rights and livelihoods of artists, songwriters and record label employees.
    It should be read
    That is unfortunate and has left us no choice but to file a lawsuit against a "dead horse" to grab more cash, not to artists but to record label industry
