In Arista v Limewire court holds that prior awards against primary infringers do not bar award against secondary infringer

In Arista Records v. Lime Wire, the Court has issued a decision holding that the RIAA's prior recoveries against 16 primary infringement defendants, through partial collection of default judgments, with respect to 104 works, did not absolutely bar the recovery of statutory damages against Lime Wire, a secondary infringement defendant, but that the RIAA's prior recoveries would be taken into account by the Court in determining the amount of the statutory damage award against Lime Wire.
