Grooveshark Added To Google Search Blacklist
Controversial music streaming service Grooveshark has been added to Google Search’s autocomplete blacklist. This dubious distinction has previously been reserved for high profile copyright offenders like The Pirate Bay. As you type within a search box on Google, autocomplete helps users find information quickly by displaying searches that might be similar to the one you’re typing.
A look at the search traffic for “Grooveshark”, according to TorrentFreak, appears to show that they were put on the blacklist at the end of April – the same time that Universal Music Group won a major appeal against the streaming music service.
