LimeWire shut down ordered by U.S. court

Limewire, one of the world's biggest file-sharing websites, has been shut down by a US judge after a four-year legal battle.

In a huge victory for the record industry, New York District Judge Kimba Wood issued a permanent injunction, ordering the service to stop supplying its software and to block the sharing of unauthorised files.  
The 17-page ruling requires LimeWire to 'disable the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution functionality, and/or all functionality of the software.'

Too bad... after all these years of downloading mp3 and stuffs...  I guess this is goodbye...
