In Arista v. LimeWire, the RIAA's motion to dismiss LimeWire's antitrust counterclaims has been granted, and the counterclaims dismissed.
The Court relied upon Bell Atlantic v. Twombly, 127 S. Ct. 1955 (2007) which held that "A party’s “obligation to provide the grounds of his entitlement to relief requires more than labels and conclusions, and a formulaic recitation of the elements of a cause of action will not do.”
