Less than a week after Grooveshark was shut down due to legal action brought against its operators for copyright infringement, a clone site appeared at Grooveshark.io.
The revived site is the work of a rogue developer operating under the pseudonym Shark, who told The Verge: “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”.
The clone site was also shut down yesterday in what Shark calls “a brutal takeover” in an email sent to Music Weekyesterday. The message adds that Shark will “release this project in open source even though [he/she] knows it’s [the industry’s] biggest fear”.
