However, he added another interesting comment, stating that the team was already working on a new project. He said that they will be sharing more details of the service as time goes on.
So far this year there have been more than one lawsuits that have been filed against Limewire. All of these have ruled in favour of the companies who filed the lawsuits, which of course, did not do Limewire any good as a company. The software, which has been around for ten years now is based on peer to peer file sharing, which is illegal if used incorrectly. Millions of users all over the world were using Limewire to share music, movies, software, and more.
