File-sharing service LimeWire, which last month was shut down by a federal judge, published a notice on its website on Wednesday warning that other applications are using its name.
"We have very recently become aware of unauthorized applications on the internet purporting to use the LimeWire name. We demand that all persons using the LimeWire software, name, or trademark in order to upload or download copyrighted works in any manner cease and desist from doing so. We further remind you that the unauthorized uploading and downloading of copyrighted works is illegal," reads LimeWire's statement.
LimeWire is under a court order
dated October 26, 2010 to stop distributing the LimeWire software. The company said that it was taking steps to comply with the October court order that stopped the company from distributing its software.
