Easing the minds of network and content providers around the world, the U.S District Court in New York has issued a order for LimeWire to immediately cease operations, granting a request by the Recording Industry Artists of America (RIAA).

Users of the LimeWire client software will immediately be notified within the client that it will no longer function.

Network administrators everywhere breathed a sigh of relief, but their packet shapers can only relax for about three days, as their less technically savvy users are now trying to figure out how to use BitTorrent.
