RIAA scores $105 Million from Limewire, Artists receive Nothing

After ten years of illegal file-sharing, LimeWire and its founder Mark Gorton have agreed to compensate the RIAA $105 million.

LimeWire was shut down by the RIAA in federal court over copyright infringement claims.

The case has finally been wrapped up with a jury deciding on damages against the service.  The jury in this case opted to arrange a settlement between LimeWire and the RIAA legal team, which would call for LimeWire to pay $10,808 USD per track for the 9,715 tracks the RIAA claimed LimeWire infringed, for a total fine of $105M USD.
