Lime Wire Judge Limits Copyright Damages Labels Can Seek

A federal judge limited the number of recordings for which music labels can seek monetary damages in the copyright infringement case against website Lime Wire LLC.

U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said that the record labels can’t demand statutory damages for each individual song that appears on an album, according to a filing yesterday in Manhattan. A trial for damages is set to begin May 2.
