    Hopefully an encouragement for people to move to better ways of downloading. Gnutella's been crap for a long time already.

    This is why people "give a fuck":

    Despite BitTorrent being the leading file-sharing protocol for several years already, LimeWire is most likely the most installed P2P application on the market. In 2008 LimeWire was the most installed P2P application with an impressive market-share of 37%, compared to 14% for runner-up uTorrent.
    Sure, there are definitely greener pastures now in terms of filesharing, but this case is huge from a legal standpoint. Being one of (if not) the most influential p2p protocols around, it sets a massive precedent for other cases to follow.

    “In January, the court will conduct a trial to determine the appropriate level of damages necessary to compensate the record companies for the billions and billions of illegal downloads that occurred through the Limewire system,” the RIAA added.
    Record companies? What about the artists? Of course, it has always been about the record companies, hasn't it. The RIAA has just gone to show that they don't give a hoot about the artists, as long as the execs can get their fix.

    What makes me laugh is that drug taking is supposed to be illegal in the States, yet here is a judge that is basically allowing a group of drug abusers the rights to reclaim billions of dollars so that it can be sent to some South American Cocaine facility, for their own personal pleasure.

    Ok - what if they go after all Torrent clients next in general?

    Successfully shutting down Limewire sets a precedence unfortunately.
