Judge Rules Against Grooveshark in Copyright Case

In the music industry’s second big legal victory in a week, a federal judge in New York ruled that Grooveshark, an online music service long vilified by the major record companies, infringed on thousands of their copyrights. Like Napster, LimeWire, Grokster and other online outlets before it, Grooveshark came under fierce attack from the recording industry for hosting music files without permission.
