Music streaming app Grooveshark has been whisked away from the App Store, and is now nowhere to be found. In a blogpost on the subject, the company explained the situation:
Earlier this afternoon, Apple sent us a letter notifying us that, due to a complaint they received from Universal Music Group UK, Grooveshark for iPhone has been, strangely, pulled from the App Store.
This comes as an absolute surprise to us, and we are not sleeping until we figure out exactly how to fix this—and get Grooveshark for iPhone back in the App Store. Above all, our biggest concern is damaging the service we provide to all of you guys—our loyal (awesome) users.
Universal Music is currently in the process of suing Grooveshark for copyright infringement, which is assumedly part of the reason for their actions.
