Grooveshark shut down on April 30, 2015

Recommended Posts

Streaming music service Grooveshark has shut down as of April 30, 2015 as part of a settlement from copyright infringement lawsuits. This came as a settlement due to potential copyright infringements. The company could have been liable for up to $736 million in damages. As part of the shutdown, ownership of the Grooveshark service, website, and all of its associated intellectual property had been transferred to the labels Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Music Group.

Grooveshark has also posted the following shutdown notice that points uses towards licensed music streaming websites on their website:
