It would be really hard to have been on the internet for any length of time and not to have heard (or even used?) Limewire. It is a peer-to-peer file – sharing service that often distributed content that infringed on copyrights.



Limewire has been in court with the RIAA over copyright infringement and in October, stopped the distribution of their software and closed their servers.



It was also noted that they had closed their music store, which was supposed to have been Limewire’s attempt to go legal.



The RIAA is seeking $1 billion in statutory damages from Limewire and the case is still in court. Limewire has said that as of 2011, it would be closing its New York offices.



Once upon a time, peer-to-peer file-sharing services were a great start-up concept. Now with the RIAA gaining court rulings against such sites as Grokster, it might not be such a good idea. The debate on the legality of peer-to-peer is still on, regardless of the court rulings obtained by the RIAA. But what do you think? Should peer-to-peer file-sharing be allowed or is it an outright infringement of an artist’s copyright?
