    Guess who's dead?



    Limewire is officially dead, ordered to shut down thanks to a court ruling from a copyright-infringement case brought on by the Recording Industry Association of America. Congratulations, RIAA, way to stick it to the eight people that were still using it.
    Earlier this year, a Manhattan federal judge ruled in favor of 13 record labels and the RIAA after they sued LimeWire for copyright infringement. The RIAA wanted the site shut down immediately, but LimeWire was granted a reprieve; until now.

    Whatever, lol
