Library.nu, Book Downloading Site, Targeted In Injunctions Requested By 17 Publishers books/Scrapbook

A large coalition of publishing firms and related trade organizations has taken legal action against what the Association of American Publishers in Washington, D.C., described on Wednesday as “one of the largest pirate web-based businesses in the world.”

At the request of 17 publishing companies in the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany, including HarperCollins, Oxford University Press and Macmillan, a Munich judge on Monday granted injunctions against illegal posting or sharing of online book files by two websites. Library.nu is alleged to have posted links to hundreds of thousands of illegal PDF copies of books since December 2010, Ed McCoyd, an attorney for the Association of American Publishers, told The Huffington Post. The majority of these uploads allegedly went through the website iFile.it, he said.

In my opinion Library.nu was the third most important website after google and wikipedia! Foa a nice discussion on why it SHOULD remain open and how that can be done have a look at:
