This is free, thought Deals was for deals costing money, albeit less than normal!! :?

Perhaps one of the more knowledgeable members could advise.

It's not a deal :)

As for legality, it seems the thing itself is about promoting unsigned acts, and smaller record labels. Apparently (and I'm going on wiki here, so make your own judgement on that)... NONE of the major record labels have signed up, and therefore most of the stuff worth listening to is illegally uploaded.

Wikipedia
Operating in similar fashion to other online services like Youtube and Vimeo, Grooveshark does not indemnify their users for any unlicensed uploaded content. Users have complained about the lack of indemnification protection found in their EULA.[14] Despite these concerns, no user to date has faced legal action from Grooveshark or third-parties. Parties claiming copyright infringement may use mechanisms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to request that their content be removed. Repeat offenders, users who have uploaded unlicensed content more than two times, have had their Grooveshark accounts suspended.[15] Grooveshark makes a Label List available of all record labels with which they have royalty agreements, though noticeably absent are any major record labels.[16] On May 8, 2009[17] EMI filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Grooveshark[18].

Surely, provided I do not copy/store any music I am in reality only listening to a glorified radio where I can choose what to play:thinking:
