File sharing service Madster has been ordered to switch off its servers after violating copyright law despite a preliminary injunction.
According to Associated Press reports, US District Judge Marvin Aspen in Chicago issued a temporary restraining order on Monday.
The judge issued a preliminary injunction against Madster on 30 October, after finding evidence that the service violated copyright law.
Record companies suing Madster claimed that it ignored the initial injunction, and asked the judge to hold the service in contempt.
Madster must now shut down all its servers while the contempt proceedings continue.
