RIAA Demanded Damages From Reincarnated Grooveshark

The Recording Industry Association of America asked a federal court to issue a default judgment against the newly emerged clone of the defunct Grooveshark music service. The music industry is asking for more than $13 million in piracy damages and $4 million for willful counterfeiting.

Earlier in 2015, the long running lawsuit between the entertainment industry and Grooveshark came to an end, though a new site was launched just a few days after. Of course, the record labels could not like this development and quickly sued the new service by obtaining a restraining order to prevent domain registrars and hosting companies from offering their services to it. As a result, Namecheap quickly suspended the original domain name, while CloudFlare initially refused to comply, but then was ordered by the court to do so.

At the same time, the reincarnation of Grooveshark wasn’t giving up and continued to operate under new domain names. In response, the RIAA asked a New York federal court to issue a default judgment against the website’s operator, describing the service as a copyright-infringing operation using the well-known Grooveshark brand to lure back former users. It actually succeeded in this, because the website was widely covered in the press, but with the music labels controlling Grooveshark’s trademarks, the RIAA only got more legal ammunition.

The music labels claimed that the new website stole Grooveshark marks and identical graphical elements. Besides, the RIAA also accused the new website of distributing lots of copyrighted music without permission, listing 89 tracks as evidence and asking for the maximum statutory damages for each case of their rights violation. Overall, the claimed damage amounted to a massive $13,350,000.

Moreover, the RIAA is asking for $4 million for willful counterfeiting of Grooveshark marks and another $400,000 for cybersquatting, by registering 4 Grooveshark domain names in bad faith.

On top of that, the record labels has asked the court to transfer the 4 Grooveshark domain names under their control so they can’t be used for any infringing actions anymore. Thus far, it is not clear whether the industry will win the case, especially after the operator of the new Grooveshark has not showed up in court.
