    I just read that the real defendant/loser Grooveshark actually paid out $50 million to record labels. Will artists see any of that money?

      Just as always, the artists will see whatever money they’re owed from record sales. So if you’re so concerned for them, stop stealing their music.

        “If you’re so concerned for them, stop stealing their music” Is that statement a factual assertion and not a rhetorical device?

        Because, I do pity the artist who signed a bad a contract And have some concern for those artists who complain about getting “ripped off” by evil record companies because they failed to understand the fine print.

        However I don’t steal their music or to use techno newspeak “share” their content

        Yeah my ass bleeds for a generation of a bunch of shitty untalented artists who sued limewire for 75 trillion dollars, and then got sued themselves for stealing Marvin Gayes music. 75 trillion ? lol They just want their fair share. Keep telling yourself that.

      There’s no way in hell Grooveshark ever had or paid across $50m. The only people that made any money at all there were their ad sales people- who took huge commissions as every sale was all margin

      Other than an EMI settlement years ago, which i don’t think Grooveshark ever actually paid in full, no labels of note ever got paid anything.

      Its a sad end note that the CEO and Chairman didn’t end up being personally prosecuted over this- the music industry has failed to set an example that might make others think twice before launching other pirate services- ergo

      Universal probably paid Jenner 5-10 million since 2011 for the Grooveshark case. Depends on how much that bill got churned.

      The accounting isn’t creative. Artist contracts don’t participate in settlement payments. Ask Joe all about it.

        I like it.

        It was once said that in the future everyone will be a criminal. Nearly everyone has infringed someone else’s copyrights. That idea can be monetized and scaled to work as supplementary income for the music industry. Let venture capitalists bankroll tech startup that has as its business model large scale copyright infringement. Wait till capital investment reaches tipping point, sue tech startup, collect settlement, then don’t pay content creators/providers.

        I tried to ask Joe about it but they say he doesn’t work at UMRK anymore he got a good job in Silicon Valley

    Until we deal with Safe Harbor and make changes to the take down process, adding a stay down provision, we have no viable means of bringing legal action against any of these sites. As it stands, every pirate site uses take down > repost to avoid prosecution.

      They also do things like host in countries where US law doesn’t apply. Some countries you have to go to a judge to ask for something to be taken down.

        U.S. Law should apply, and be enforced everywhere. It is awesome!

        • Isaac

          Lol. Your a idiot. It’s U.S LAW, not international law, many pirate sites are from other countries like Russia and China. The U.S has no jurisdiction in those countries. I wish it could, but it can, and with so many people using the Internet it’s almost impossible.
