Lime Wire consent injunction entered

In Arista Records v. LimeWire, a consent injunction has been entered.

A consent injunction is an injunction which is agreed to by both sides.

Under the injunction, LimeWire is required to cease using its old software, and is permitted to develop new software.

The injunction leaves open the question of damages, and provides that if any defendant is later exonerated on appeal, the injunction would no longer be applicable to that defendant.
