Grooveshark sued by Universal Music

Grooveshark - an online music streaming service similar to Napster and Limewire is being sued by Universal Music for 17 billion. The lawsuit is regarding "bulk uploading" copy right infringement. Universal claims that Grooveshark employees would receive bonuses for sending music files to Grooveshark servers and as a result is asking for 150,000 for each transaction that was made.

Grooveshark plans to fight the lawsuit. It will be interesting to see what happens as it could be the end of another online music streaming service.
