Grooveshark Will Soon Be Destroyed

Remember Grooveshark, the magical website that let you stream any song you wanted, in high quality, for free? Did you ever wonder how such a thing managed to avoid legal annihilation? Trick question! It hasn’t. Its lawsuit death is here.
The Next Web’s Drew Olanoff reports Universal is suing Grooveshark for illegally uploading tracks—at $150,000 a track. That’s a lot per track. Also, there are a ton of them—Grooveshark’s chief is accused of uploading 1,971 songs of alone—so Grooveshark potentially owes around $15 billion.
