The announcement came after the court granted the Los Angeles-based company's motion to disable the file-sharing application.
"We believe our unilateral decision to take down the Exchange will facilitate a resolution of the copyright infringement litigation pending against Scour," Scour president Dan Rodrigues said in a statement. "In addition, we expect the shutdown of the Exchange to facilitate a sale of Scour's assets, which will maximize creditor recovery."
Scour's technology enables computer users to swap digital music and video files directly among themselves, without the use of a central server.
CenterSpan Communications, a Hillsboro, Ore.-based maker of file-sharing software, said Tuesday it will submit a bid for Scour's assets.
Scour said it will consider bids for its assets until Dec. 12.
