BBC News reports the US district court in New York has shut down file-sharing service LimeWire. The decision ends four years of battling with the Record Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The injunction compels Lime Group to disable its searching, downloading, uploading and file trading features.
The firm plans to launch new services that adhere to copyright laws soon.
Visitors to the LimeWire website are confronted with a legal notice that reads: "This is an offical notice that LimeWire is under a court ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software."
