Music Industry Sued Aurous App for Copyright Infringement

Music labels have files a lawsuit against the file-sharing app Aurous for “copyright infringement on a massive scale”. Haven’t you heard about the app? It’s not surprising, because it’s been just days after its earliest alpha version launched.


The RIAA has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a number of music labels seeking an injunction against the app as well as damages. Aurous, a Spotify-style app, allows its users to search for music tracks to stream and download. Although the app developer has said it is going to become an aggregator for music from licensed streaming services, the RIAA complains that its sources are piracy websites, like Grokster, Limewire or Grooveshark. All three of the services named in RIAA’s statement were shut down following legal action from the entertainment industry. This is why the RIAA is sure that Aurous will meet a similar fate.

The app developer defended his creation, calling it a music player “like any other”. The only difference of the app is that it is able to take advantage of other existing platforms and piggyback off those.

However, the RIAA claims this is not true. It points out that the “Aurous Network”, the default source within the app, is pulling files from Russian piracy website Player, along with MP3WithMe, VK and MP3Skull, which have all been accused of piracy by music labels. VK, short for VKontakte (InTouch in Russian) is known as local equivalent to Facebook, which has also faced regular legal battles with labels over the music being pirated on its service.

In the meantime, Aurous has already received the backing of EFF and now faces the challenge of funding the upcoming legal battle.

kbsoftware avatarNow if the RIAA is telling the truth and fact is when it comes to the truth the RIAA is shady and the app is using known pirate websites to retrieve the music than yeah the app should be sued out of existence. As mentioned though when it comes to the truth the RIAA does not have a great track record so I'm assuming that there is more to this story and that's why the EFF is now involved. Looking forward to reading more about this.
