CNET sued for giving kids LimeWire

Downloads equal piracy, says film producer

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Even as the LimeWire damages case grinds its way through the courts, a group of film and music artists led by wealthy film producer and founder of FilmOn.com Alki David are suing CBS Interactive and CNET for distributing the LimeWire application.

LimeWire, whose service was killed off by the US District Court last year, was found responsible for the almost-ubiquitous use of its service for copyright infringement. Tellingly, as the company’s CEO George Searle said at the time: “The injunction only applies to the LimeWire product.”

The importance of the product is the angle being pursued in the new lawsuit. The plaintiffs’ press statement says 95 percent of copies of LimeWire downloaded originated “from these defendants’ Website since 2008”. The statement also claims that CNET distributed 32 million copies of the FrostWire application.

David has further documentation of his allegations on the Viaconned Website, while co-plaintiff Mike Mozart posts his contributions to the accusations on his blog. ®
