And if SOPA passes that won't matter. Universal will just say they're suspicious and Grooveshark will have to pull down every song published by Universal or face elimination from the Internet.

is it me or does it seem like every one msised the picture about them wanting to sell user information .... i hope this company burns. any company that is found of bad buisness practices needs to go down long beofre theya re ever in any real position of power. screw the illegal download crap , the fact they started off with the intention to sell user's data is out right perverse to put it mildly. though i'm sure they would avhe trhown this right on thier EULA , it is still tehw rong way to start a buisness. there are companies taht get paid to collect " private user data" and they pay people for said data ,and these jack a--es were gonna get paid to so they could sell people's data. it makes me want to beat these con artist .

I support SOPA, I have a suspicion that everything on the internet is infringing on my copyrights. Therefor I demand that all corporations be removed from the internet, as well as any law enforcement agencies. I of course do not seek any money or wish to pursue the matter in court and will leave it at suspicion which is good enough to get the job done.

[citation]The business was a bet to escape the legal claws of Universal until Grooveshark would be able to sell user data for more money than what it would have to pay for music license fees.[/citation]

Holy crap... really? Why on earth is it legal for them to sell "user data?" When did that become something people are just okay with? Why isn't everyone pissed off that corporations do this? When did privacy become a secondary privilege that you don't care about?

On top of that.... the article is written stating that the disturbing thing about it is the illegal music files being uploaded. WHO GIVES A CRAP? They make enough money, they can go die in a fire. They are unnecessary in today's age. They are just leeching off of the artists and the consumers.

I have proof that Grooveshark is using illegal downloads as a source for its streaming service. Once upon a time, I "illegally" downloaded a CD from the web, but one track was skipping at time 2:09. This CD has very limited diffusion, so I went on Grooveshark with the intention of streaming the track, recording it through my soundcard analog output, and using the resulting wav file to patch my mp3 file (Goldwave sound editor).

Lo and Behold, the Grooveshark streaming also skips at time 2:09. QED: Grooveshark has used the same "illegal" download as a source.

I completely agree - that's worse than anything else mentioned in this article. I don't use Facebook strictly for that reason - I refuse to give my private data to anyone who uses it to make a profit.

I think that everyone is over-reacting to the user data selling bit. They aren't selling any personal information about you. I have an account with Grooveshark and all they ask for is an email address. The data they would be selling would be user's listening habits. Personally I think that its morally acceptable for a company to do that since it is virtually anonymous (assuming you just make a BS email account, which is what I did).

Welcome to Corporate America. They probably won't even get jail time. Just a fine that never gets paid cause they'll go into bankruptcy. The owners get to walk away with their huge salaries. Some early investors will get bank. The late investors and users get screwed.

BTW most major websites operate like this today. It may be detailed in their terms and services and privacy policies but you'll need a lawyer to interpret it. The best you'll get is a class action lawsuit where some lawyer gets a few million and the users get $1. Good luck collecting.

We prefer to spend 100 billion a year on the "War on Drugs" instead of going after white collar criminals.
