USA Headlines - Lime Wire Sued
A group of music companies, including Sony BMG, Virgin Records and Warner Bros. Records, have accused Lime Wire and the company's officers of copyright infringement, according to a federal lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in New York. Lime Wire produces software that's often used to create copies of music recordings and then distribute them over the Web.
The recording industry is asking for compensatory and punitive damages, such as $150,000 for every song distributed without permission.
