LimeWire Antitrust Claims Against RIAA Dismissed legislation

Slashdot: News for nerds, stuff that matters

“The antitrust counterclaims imposed by Lime Wire against the RIAA record companies have been dismissed. In a 45-page decision (pdf), the Court relied principally upon the holding of the United States Supreme Court in Bell Atlantic v. Twombly that ‘A party’s obligation to provide the grounds of his entitlement to relief requires more than labels and conclusions, and a formulaic recitation of the elements of a cause of action will not do.’ Ironically, the Twombly decision was the authority upon which the RIAA’s copyright infringement complaint was dismissed in Interscope v. Rodriguez.”
