You may have read the news regarding lawsuits from major music labels against Grooveshark. This latest news dealt specifically with an early version of Grooveshark which we dispensed of in 2008 in favor of our current music streaming service. As such we will continue to work with all parties to ensure we respect all artist and songwriter copyrights.
At Grooveshark, we stand for empowering artists and fans through technology, and bringing music to the world. These goals motivate our team every day, and our efforts have helped improve people’s lives through music — both listeners who discover new music and artists whose music finds an audience through our platform.
Grooveshark’s service has already provided millions of dollars in revenue to artists and labels all over the world, and we are incredibly proud of this. We operate our business with accountability, honesty and courage, and will continue to do so.
There are many exciting things coming up for Grooveshark users in the coming months, so be on the lookout for updates soon.
Thanks for your support, Sharks.
