Grooveshark has been cloned and its music is back online

Grooveshark has been cloned and its music is back online | Soundtrack | Scoop.it
Grooveshark has come back online — but not officially. A clone of Grooveshark is now being hosted at Grooveshark.io (the original site was a .com), allowing visitors to keep streaming, downloading, and searching for music files, including the many, many copyrighted files that got the original site in trouble.

The cloned site's creator, who goes under the pseudonym Shark, claims to have started backing up Grooveshark after suspecting that it was about to go offline. Shark claims to have backed up 90 percent of Grooveshark's content and to have also assembled a team dedicated to bringing all of Grooveshark's features, including playlists and favorites, back online. "I was connected to Grooveshark a few years back and I have, together with the team I've gathered, the knowledge and the technological abilities to bring it back to life," Shark writes in an email to The Verge.
Christopher Coleman's insight:

"The Clone Wars have begun."

"I can tell you that we see Spotify [free] users more than twice as likely to be buying digital downloads compared to non-users, and that ratio has not changed since Q3 2011,” says NPD analyst Ross Crupnick. Spotify launched in the US in July 2011.

music streaming actually helps download sales 

Sarah Elizabeth Rounds's curator insight, November 5, 2015 7:39 PM

I found it very surprising that the article states that people who stream music are more likely to pay for a digital download.  I agree with the statement because after listening to a song or album, you decide that you really like it and want to have it to listen to it whenever.  I have actually done this plenty of times.  This way, Spotify is making money from the listener's stream and the artist will make money from the royalties from Spotify and from a listener buying the digital download or the physical copy.

Digital Music News - Grooveshark Is Now Launching an HTML5 App... | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

This is how you stick your middle finger right in the face of the major labels... and Apple. Grooveshark is now launching an HTML5-based iOS app, which runs on devices like the iPhone and iPad but doesn't require approval from Apple, labels, or anyone else. Last year, Apple refused to approve the Grooveshark app, reportedly because of heavy pressure from lead litigant Universal Music Group.
