RIAA Discommended LimeWire’s Pride In Their Service

RIAA Discommended LimeWire’s Pride In Their Service

The RIAA argues that the recent court ruling represents a considerable step in the future of digital music, and encourages ex-LimeWire customers to decide switching to other numerous legal online services existing today. However, the rest of the digital world realizes that all that will happen after this ruling is that they would just select another peer-to-peer program, such as BitTorrent, instead of LimeWire.


A week ago U.S. District Judge handed out his final decision, ordering the P2P application LimeWire to stop all its operations. Today the Record Industry Association of America took its time to comment on the court decision. They particularly point out that the LimeWire operators keep touting how proud they are of the P2P service. The RIAA makes it clearer, saying that for the entire last decade, LimeWire and its operators have been violating the country’s law, thus immensely enriching themselves. Early next year the court is going to conduct a trial aimed at determining the level of damages the entertainment industry suffered from their illicit activity.

The lesson the other members of the digital world are supposed to learn from the case is that nobody should try to profit from unauthorized peer-to-peer. The RIAA pointed out that LimeWire service was responsible for hundreds of thousands dollars in lost sales to numerous musicians. They believe that applications flouting the legislation don’t deserve a place in the nowadays marketplace where thousands of accessible legal websites are also offering the consumers their favorite content at quite affordable prices.

Since there are over eleven million legal songs in the Internet and over 400 licensed music services at the moment, the RIAA insists the decision was vital for legitimate music services to thrive in the Internet. Meanwhile, the industry forgets to mention that the profits of the music industry have risen within the last decade, with some estimations saying that the musicians’ income has been up around 60% over the last ten years.

While the RIAA encourages the former LimeWire users to choose any of the easy-to-use lawful options available in the market today, they will most likely to switch to some other alternative file-sharing services, as few of those who preferred illegal file-trading before would consider to stay on the right side of the law now.

menahunie avatarMy take is the RIAA is stating we now have put our foot up yours. So now that we taught you bad boys and girls a lesson by ruining the lives of some of you to be good little boys and girls. Do exactly what we tell you to do and things will be fine; we won't ruin your lives.
So why not do what millions of people are doing? You want your music; record it off the radio.. What do you think the RIAA is going to do about that?
Why do you think the RIAA is working to ram through that "performance" tax on the radio stations and why do you think they again are trying to ram through laws to make it a requirement that FM Radios are installed in all cell phones under the guise of we need to have them in case of a emergency - disaster?
Yea Right.. That will get them minimum of 100 million dollars a year in their pockets and it won't even go to any "artists"..

No avatarLets be very honest with ourselves. Imagine that you build tables for a living and people come and start picking them up and carrying them home, I imagine you would be very upset and most would call the police to report a theft. I really dont see it any differently. However, Im cheap and I use file sharing ... and I cant imagine me stopping.

tonymengela avatarOk here is the deal, I pay for Internet cable tv basically a digital signal at a certain speed. In my opinion I have already paid for what ever I download. My ISP has to pay franchise fees to these people to even provide the content that is out there. I am paying for a digital signal, They digitized and put it out there. I do not think I should have to pay twice, or even more times for the same product. I dont go out and buy a HARD COPY of what ever I like, but if it is shit, it just gets deleted.

D4T4 avatarWell put Tidecats, although I must say they have actually made a profit from me. My downloading has instilled an interest in the cinema now, whereas previously I would just watch TV, I now watch the GOOD films on the big screen and download the crap to peruse at my leisure. Thus not wasting the expense of a night at the cinema to watch some crap that "Hollywood" thinks "will do".

SaveIt4later avatarvery good point tidecats. finally someone on the same page as me when it comes to all this.
Question for menahunie: If I use limewire or utorrent to DL music, how much money goes to the artist then?
I'm not suggesting that the RIAA are innocent when it comes to stealing. In my opinion though combined file sharers of music take a whole lot more from artists pockets than the RIAA.
