Court grants RIAA Sum Judg Motions vs Limewire

NewYorkCountryLawyer (912032) writes "District Court Judge Kimba Wood has granted some of the RIAA's key summary judgment motions in Arista Records v Lime Group. In her 59-page decision (PDF) she found Lime Group itself, as well as its CEO and a separate company, liable for intentionally inducing Limewire users to infringe plaintiffs' copyrights. The decision was not a final judgment, so it is not appealable. Additionally, it denied summary judgment on certain issues, and did not address any possible damages."

holding not only Lime Wire, but also its 87% shareholder (Lime Group) and its CEO and sole director, to be liable as well.

So, shareholder found liable/guilty? I wonder by what reasoning/argumentation? What did it do (as a shareholder)? (since IANAL, tried to quickly identify the info in the decision (PDF format) [beckermanlegal.com] and failed).
