Grooveshark off Facebook because of copyright complaint

Facebook has confirmed to Digital Music News that it removed Grooveshark’s app from its platform because of a copyright complaint, though it did not say where the complaint came from.

As previously reported, Grooveshark’s official presence on the social network was deleted at the start of the month. The controversial streaming service, currently in legal dispute with all four major labels, initially said its app and official page on Facebook were offline by mistake, but with no further word on the matter it looked increasingly like there was more to the disappearance.

And a Facebook spokesperson has now told DMN: “We have removed the Grooveshark app due to a copyright infringement complaint we received”.
