Labels Shutdown eDonkey

(CMJ) London-based International Federation Of Phonographic Industry (IFPI) dealt illegal file-sharing network eDonkey a major blow on Friday, when court-granted injunctions were ordered to shut down seven of their servers in Germany.

IFPI, a blanket organization representing about 1400 record companies across 75 countries, used its German unit to present the injunctions against the network in Hamburg, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Leipzig and Frankfurt's courts.

The shut down of the servers effectively cuts off the network's service to about 1.3 million users worldwide, according to IFPI spokesman Alex Jacob. This move marks the third time this year that the organization has taken action against eDonkey. - more on this story
