>As LimeWire Shuts Its Doors, Other P2P Clients See a Surge in Usage


limewire_logo.jpgLess than a week since LimeWire was ordered to shut down its operations, almost all other major file-sharing applications are reporting a massive increase in downloads, arguably from those displaced LimeWire users.

A New York district judge last Tuesday issued a cease-and-desist order, demanding that LimeWire immediately close its doors. And while LimeWire has said it has plans to institute a redesigned service, based on legal and licensed music subscriptions, it seems like many of the site’s users may have gone elsewhere for their torrents, rather than waiting for a revised version of what was once the most popular file-sharing app.
