The settlement puts to rest the suit against LimeWire that involved more than 30 different music publishers. LimeWire was sued last year and ordered to disable “the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution functionality, and/or all functionality” of the LimeWire software.
LimeWire tried to stay alive as long as it could until the court ordered them to shut their doors. A spokesperson from the National Music Publishers Association issued the following statement on the matter:
“We are pleased that this litigation is over. The parties worked hard to achieve a settlement that is a good result for all involved.”
