Wow just when you through enough was enough was enough for the RIAA and the music executives for large music labels. Well Google cited by concerns of copyright violations has now pulled the Grooveshark app from the Android market,  this also means users like me that had the application installed will have it removed from any device running Android OS (droid).  Grooveshark allows you to stream music from a library of roughly 6 million tracks, build playlists or a station to listen to and share with others out on the internet.  This applications isn’t the only one that does this!,  there is Pandora, Last.fm and a slew of other media applications for both your desktop (or laptop) as well as your phone.  Why was Grooveshark singled out?  Why the Android market when you can still do the same functions even more so using a computer.

Well you know that Indienation.fm doesn’t have much of a concerns here as all of our music is opensource, creative commons and Indie artists without a large entity  that want your money. Feel free to comment and thanks for supporting indienation!
Edit:  Recent news sites claim this app is back however I can’t find it on the Android market.
