Early stages but I've already found some stuff here from my favourite bands
"Operating in similar fashion to other online services like Youtube and Vimeo, Grooveshark does not indemnify their users for any unlicensed uploaded content. Users have complained about the lack of indemnification protection found in their EULA. Despite these concerns, no user to date has faced legal action from Grooveshark or third-parties. Parties claiming copyright infringement may use mechanisms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to request that their content be removed. Repeat offenders, users who have uploaded unlicensed content more than two times, have had their Grooveshark accounts suspended. Grooveshark makes a Label List available of all record labels with which they have royalty agreements, though noticeably absent were any major record labels. This changed on May 8, 2009 EMI filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Grooveshark, which was dropped on October 13, 2009 and replaced with a licensing deal."
seems that they've been around since '97 too, albeit in a radically different guise.
