Refreshing: Limewire Sues the RIAA

In a move as refreshing as a cool summer breeze, the pirates from Limewire are sueing the RIAA for anti-trust violations and a bunch of other cool shit.

“LimeWire now charges the record companies with colluding to create a monopoly over the digital distribution of copyrighted music. The record companies “have engaged in these unfair business practices for the specific purpose of eliminating sources of decentralized peer-to-peer file sharing and acquiring a monopoly over digital distribution of commercially valuable copyrighted music and movie content,” the lawsuit reads.”

Limewire is asking for a jury trial, which is great because you know that’s going to be the O.J. Trial for nerds. We at Consumerist are in favor of settling the matter on “Judge Reinhold”.
