Digital Music News Drawn Further In Grooveshark VS Universal Music Group

Digital Music News Drawn Further In Grooveshark VS Universal Music Group

By: Corey Tate
January 18, 2012

Here's the response by Digital Music News publisher and founder Paul Resnikoff yesterday to being subpoenaed by Grooveshark in the Grooveshark VS Universal Music Group court case, in which an email from an anonymous Grooveshark employee said that Grooveshark employees were instructed to actively upload unauthorized music to the Grooveshark site in addition to Grooveshark users doing so:

"The aggressive and far-reaching subpoena from Grooveshark is probably based on the assumption that Digital Music News is small enough to be intimidated, legally or otherwise. That could prove a drastic miscalculation, especially considering a wide body of legal protections and precedents that protect journalists and their whistleblower sources, not to mention a determination by this publication to protect all informants. The subpoena action may also stir additional information from unfriendly sources, which could be entered into the case and prove incredibly damaging to Grooveshark's defense effort." Give em' hell, Paul.
