LimeWire not done fighting copyright ruling

Thu May 27, 2010 @ 10:47AM PST

By Eriq Gardner

LimeWire, one of the oldest surviving file-sharing networks on the Internet, is not done fighting against the music industry.

The company is asking a New York district court to reconsider its big decision a couple weeks ago that the service was guilty of inducing and committing copyright infringement (and practicing unfair competition).

In a motion filed yesterday, LimeWire argues that the court made errors in its analysis of liability, including whether the company had the ability to supervise copyright infringement. LimeWire also says the court reached its conclusions for summary judgment without properly considering conflicting evidence and giving it the benefit of the doubt, as required at the summary judgment phase.

The motion is after the jump.
