Groovejaar Turns Grooveshark Into Limewire. Then There’s Groove Shredder…
The RIAA and many record labels have never liked Grooveshark much even though the music streamer claims it's DMCA-compliant and responds to takedown requests. Two new open source projects – Groovejaar and Groove Shredder - are guaranteed to make the RIAA & CO like Grooveshark even less. To be clear, Grooveshark has nothing to do with the either. But if users can now illegally download songs from a streaming site that they already think is illegal… You get the picture. DETAILS:
