2010 has been an incredible year for us here at Grooveshark—but we’re not completely done with the year just yet. We have a couple of exciting announcements to make before we take on 2011. First off: the launch of our revamped copyright management page, which includes a new web-based DMCA takedown tool.
Having recently completely revamped Grooveshark itself, we wanted to take some time to also better the experience of content holders. We are proud to announce our brand new copyright management page to further help content owners manage material on Grooveshark. This page outlines our updated policies regarding content owners’ rights, including our commitment to comply with properly filed DMCA takedown requests expiditiously, as well as all other requests and inquiries.
Furthermore, our revamped copyright management page contains a new form-based tool to help artists and labels communicate with us when content needs to be removed.
Our ever-growing content management team has always complied with DMCA takedown requests, and these updates will help us to more efficiently and effectively act on such notices. Of course, we’ll still accept traditional paper based snail mail takedown notices for those who insist on sending them.
Grooveshark has always been and will always be as committed to helping music fans legally enjoy the music they love as we are to finding new ways to compensate artists and content owners. We have built relationships with thousands of content owners, and in turn, our partners have found Grooveshark as an effective way to promote and monetize their music. If you’re a content owner with absolutely any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
