Grooveshark has been pulled from Google Play less than a week after being reinstated in the Android market.
The controversial music service celebrated the relaunch of its app for Android devices last week, more than a year after being removed from Google’s app store.
Despite the continuation of copyright infringement lawsuits from Universal, Sony and Warner Music Group against the company - along with a lawsuit over royalties from EMI - a statement from Grooveshark said: "After working closely with Google to get rogue apps removed, we're delighted that the official Grooveshark app has been reinstated in the Android market.”
Following Google’s decision to take down the app from its marketplace once more, a Grooveshark rep today told CNET that the company has “filed a counter-notice and is working with Google and their Google Play reinstatement process to get the app back in the market.”
Last week, Grooveshark said that the new labels have been stacking up since January and its licensing deals now number in the hundreds.
