What's the difference? Grooveshark isn't paying them anyway.



Labels prefer people streaming over downloading, correct? AsI understand their reasoning, streaming is more inconvenient than a downloaded song, so the incentive to purchase the tracks remains.

(The logic of streaming being more inconvenient than a file makes less and less sense each year, though as wireless connectivity improves).
