Musicbusinessworldwide.com is reporting that Grooveshack, the audio streaming service which was notorious for copyright infringing from streaming audio over the Internet has shut down.

Founded more than seven years ago, the streaming service recently made headlines with the trial over damages with Universal Music. The court has now spoken the verdict. The former streaming service is now in settlements with several major music labels. As a result of the trial, Groovesh has also agreed to shut down its operations immediately.

The settlement not only required the founders of the streaming service to cease the services immediately but also means that should the founders ever infringe copyright again they would have to pay around $75 million in damages.
