Court Rules for Music Labels in LimeWire Case

A big victory for big music: A federal court has ruled in favor of the music labels in their fight against LimeWire, one of the most prominent filesharing services on the Web. Almost all of music available on the service -- 93 percent, according to a study used in the lawsuit -- and even more of the stuff actually downloaded -- 98.8 percent, via the same study -- was protected by copyright and shouldn’t have been there.
