Remember when you set up those bomb playlists for your sick houseparties on Grooveshark? Well, those memories will have to remain just that--memories. The free music streaming service shut down on April 30 due to a major lawsuit settlement with the Big Three (Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group). They may end up paying around $736 million if all of the cited songs in the suit were deemed to be uploaded willfully as copyrighted content. Grooveshark's parent company, Escape Media, shut down the site, leaving a letter to its users in its place. In it, they state a broad apology and suggest other companies to use in its place.
The founders of Grooveshark, Josh Greenberg and Sam Tarantino, started the service for music fans to share their favorites songs as well as discover new artists. But as the music industry has been moving towards streaming services over digital and hard copy purchases, they must have seen this coming, especially since they've been here before. Do you think TIDAL is celebrating or nah?
