The popular file-sharing website Limewire was shut down by the US Court last Tuesday after several music companies filed a lawsuit. In the homepage of Limewire.com, you can read the message “under a court-ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software.”

George Searle, Chief Executive of Limewire expressed his disappointments with the recent turnout of events. “We are extremely proud of our pioneering history and have, for years, worked hard to bridge the gap between technology and content rights holders,” Searle said. “However, at this time, we have no option but to cease further distribution and support of our software.”

Searle expressed his sincere thanks to the users of the software. “Our team of technologists and music enthusiasts are 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,” he said.

The case started in 2006 wherein 13 music companies filed a case against Limewire under Judge Wood and the decision last May was in their favor. However, some of the members of the National Music Publishers Association filed a separate lawsuit last June and this is the result.
