Court Ruling Favors Grooveshark on Copyright Issue

Grooveshark’s parent company, Escape Media Group, won a glimmer of hope with a court decision that undercut one of the Universal Music Group’s two copyright infringement cases against it, and also opened the door for it to countersue the label for what could be millions of dollars in damages. But even if Grooveshark wins that case, it faces another, bigger infringement suit, as well as another claim in a dispute over publishing royalties — and questions about whether it can hold on to those licenses it has managed to get.
