Limewire has officially been shut down. They’re done.

A new article on CNET says that “U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood issued an injunction today against the company that operates the long popular file-sharing software, LimeWire, and requires managers there to disable “the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution functionality, and/or all functionality” of the LimeWire software”

If you visit the Limewire page right now, you’ll see the official “death notice”…

LimeWire Closed

“This is an official notice that LimeWire is under a court-ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software. Downloading or sharing copyrighted content without authorization is illegal.”

If you’re still on Limewire, I would recommend you remove the app from your system right now. It’s about to be as useful as Napster was when the hammer came down on them.

EDIT 02/18/18 : There’s a really good list on that covers LimeWire and Grooveshark alternatives!
