EMI Music ends contract with Grooveshark

6 April 2012 | Category: Online

Record publisher announces that it is suing the online music service for unpaid royalities.

Grooveshark which is owned by Escape Media has been accused by EMI of not paying royalties and not providing necessary accounting statements. However, Grooveshark claim that they had stopped working with EMI because its streaming rates were "unsustainable".

The withdrawal of EMI's music catalogue means that Grooveshark has no major record labels on its service. Grooveshark is also currently being sued by Universal, Sony and Warner Music for copyright infringment.
