And google are liable because they provide torrent results in searches; internet providers are liable because they sell high speed high download data plans; Microsoft is liable because it provides a software platform which allows people to install torrent and file ripping software; my parents are liable because they didn't teach me the value of buying something you want and not to steal it.
You're right, the list could go on and on and on. I don't feel that it is plausible to suggest limewire be held accountable for providing the platform. If they advertised the fact that you could download illegal and copyright breached material, fine, but just providing a technology....nup I don't agree with it. Just my 2 cents anyway, I got to go and seek copyright infringement upon Xerox, they created the photocopier and someone made a copy of my work.
