Limewire, an app that we all know and love got sued by the RIAA. So, what did they do? Well, they didn’t lay down and take it. They countersued.
They claim that the RIAA
goal was simple: to destroy any online music distribution service they did not own or control, or force such services to do business with them on exclusive and/or other anticompetitive terms so as to limit and ultimately control the distribution and pricing of digital music, all to the detriment of consumers. (Counterclaim, paragraph 26, page 18).
Way to go. It’s about time that someone took it to the RIAA. And it just might have legs. The best part is that they are demanding a trial by jury.
Way to go Limewire!
