Stuff like this really annoys me. First off, Limewire isn't all illegal music. Second, the RIAA isn't going after companies like Limewire to protect the artists, they're doing it to protect the failing business model of the record labels. Bands like Radiohead have shown you don't need to be on a record label anymore  (they released their album In Rainbows on their site and let people pay what ever they wanted for it, even $0 and they made more on that album than all their previous albums put together. So who thinks it was right for the RIAA to shutdown Limewire?
