Grooveshark & EMI fall out

To say Grooveshark has not managed to get all the major labels on side is a little bit of an understatement, with only EMI agreeing to license its music to the streaming service. However, it seems that now Grooveshark is in EMI's bad books as the music sharing site has failed to make all streaming payments due to the record company and therefore terminated their working contract. As a result EMI has taken Grooveshark to court claiming that without an existing licensing agreement, the label's music should be taken down from the site.
This is not the first time Grooveshark has been in court up against the major labels over copyright infringement disputes and is probably not the best start to creating long term working relationships in the music industry. Find out all the latest via the links below...
