Streamingdienst Grooveshark is weer online

0

De enorm populaire streamingdienst Grooveshark ging vorige week offline. Grooveshark had een slepende copyrightconflict met grote platenlabels. Om verdere rechtszaken in de toekomst te voorkomen besloten de beheerders om de website offline te halen.

Inmiddels is er een gekloonde versie van Grooveshark online verschenen. De anonieme maker van de onofficiële Grooveshark-versie heeft naar eigen zeggen 90 procent van het materiaal online geplaatst. De resterende 10 procent komt binnenkort online.

De kloon van Grooveshark biedt de mogelijkheid om auteursrechtelijk beschermde muziek te streamen en te downloaden en is te bereiken via Grooveshark.io.

De anonieme maker die zich zelf Shark noemt laat ook weten dat hij alle features van de originele Grooveshark binnenkort online wil zetten.

Hieronder de betreffende e-mail die wij gisteren hebben ontvangen:

Howdy Tech Mania,

Nice to e-meet you!

My name is “Shark” and my team and I just brought Grooveshark back from the dead.

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.

Why are we doing this? Like Obama said (sort of): Because YES, we can. And we want to. Simple as that.

How can I do this? Well, I started backing up all the content on the website when I started suspecting that Grooveshark’s demise is close and my suspicion was confirmed a few days later when they closed. By the time they closed I have already backed up 90% of the content on the site and I’m now working on getting the remaining 10%.

All the files I’ve saved are currently available at Grooveshark’s new domain: www.grooveshark.io

We’re also working very hard on reproducing Grooveshark’s old UI with all the features it had, like making playlists, favorites and more.

Grooveshark has its groove back!

Let me know if you have any questions about this.

Sincerely,

Shark and the team.
