Grooveshark for Android: Back after over a year’s absence (update) 43 by Andrew Grush on August 31, 2012 4:17 pm 3 Almost a year and a half ago, the Grooveshark app for Android was removed from the Google Play Store. Today though, Grooveshark is back to Google Play. What changed Google’s minds? A recent decision in a New York suite that pitted Universal Music against Escape Media. Universal claimed that the safe harbor provisions in the DMCA didn’t apply to recordings before 1972, but the judge didn’t agree with the argument.
