And thus, the days of LimeWire are officially at an end.

This afternoon, the owners of LimeWire, the highly frequented free file sharing application that aided thousands of us to download music illegally, agreed to pay 13 record companies a hefty sum to end their long-standing lawsuit and trial.

The labels, which include Arista, Atlantic, BMG Music, Capitol, Elektra, Interscope, Laface, Motown, Priority, Sony BMG, UMG, Virgin and Warner Brothers, will be paid $105 million in copyright infringement damages.

That's a lot of money…but then again, does anyone else feel like they owe them all much more than that? In the grand scheme of things, we imagined that number being way higher based upon the sheer volume of music we assume is downloaded per day.

Looks like pirates have set their sights on Pandora!

James Cameron's Avatar has been named 2010's most popular illegal download, with over 16 million BitTorrent downloads alone!

Avatar has received 51 percent more BitTorrent downloads than last year's #1 illegal download, Star Trek.

Other films on the unfortunate Top 10 List include Kick-Ass, Inception, Shutter Island, Iron Man 2, Clash of the Titans, Green Zone, Sherlock Holmes, The Hurt Locker, and Salt.

Don't worry too much, James! We're sure plenty of folks will still pick up Avatar on Blu-Ray & DVD to stuff those stockings!

Now, get going on that Avatar 2 script, bb!
