A coalition of eight music publishers sued the file-sharing service LimeWire on Wednesday, accusing it of copyright infringement, according to the National Music Publishers' Association, the industry group that organized the suit.
The lawsuit comes after a federal judge's ruling last month in a similar case brought by record companies that LimeWire and its creator, Mark Gorton, were liable for copyright infringement.

A group of music publishers filed suit Wednesday against LimeWire, a popular online file-sharing service that has already been found liable for copyright infringement in a separate case.
Eight members of the National Music Publishers' Association (NMPA) filed a copyright infringement suit in US District Court for the Southern District of New York, the NMPA said in a statement.
