The music industry wants LimeWire to pay up to $75 trillion in damages after losing a copyright infringement claim. That's right . . . $75 trillion. Manhattan federal Judge Kimba Wood has labeled this request "absurd."
So limewire still works? ... hmmm :)
They want more money than the entire WORLD has. Interestingly spectacular.
Surely this is a sign of a serious mental illness?
Multiple choice question time!
Assuming they are after restitution on a per infraction basis and have credible evidence, the amount cited is:
a) Too much - lolwut phwoar etc
b) Too little - it'd be way more than that ; heaps of people go 24/7 for years etc
c) Irrelevant, null and void due to a non-existant suitable business model - downloades are merely providing statistical feedback
d) I'm not in a positition to comment due to bias or lack of facts
e) You haven't read the thread properly lolwut goody two shoes post medium clarifying image
f) Limewire is not responsible for the content being transferred via their service, null and void chase individuals
g) Set as such to make an emphasisising point proving example/pcdnt
h) This question is lacking options and needs user reply submitted amending
Let's make it fun and make it so you can choose multiple answers - I choose c 1/2 and a smidge of f and g. :)
just when you think the RIAA couldn't become any more retarded
$75 Trillion huh? pocket change
RIAA went full retard
seems litigious more like
How come their EULA didn't protect them? I thought that is what those things are suppose to do in that it stops the company being sued because their users read it, but did not follow the outlined details.
While they are asking for the impossible, why not ask for the moon. RIAA can build a secret base on the dark side of the moon and launch Interplanetary lawyer missiles at earth, handing notices to filthy people who downloaded a crappy movie that no one really saw.
A EULA has little to no legal weight, just like when Sony introduced the condition in the PSN EULA that you aren't allowed to sue them if you sign it.
launch Interplanetary lawyer missiles at earth,
Already been done: Check it

Reminds me of this
My experience with lime-wire about 3 years ago went like this.
Search : "Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood'
"Gorillaz - Clint eastwood hot young teen gets f***ed 45"
"Gorillaz - Backdoor llama fisting 5 extended edition"
"Gorillaz Girl gives blumpkins while solving math"
So to put it into perspective, limewire has enabled the music and entertainment industry to miss out on tapping each person in the world, $11,000 dollars.
Just as a reference; the average income of each person in the world is $7,030 per year.
So how much were they making before LimeWire?
I love how the woman who wrote the article indirectly calls her readers stupid by saying they probably didn't even know trillion was a real number.
