Streaming music service Grooveshark is today announcing it has signed a new licensing deal with worldwide distribution network Fried Puppy Dog Discs. Fried Puppy Dog Discs represents over half a dozen artists and well over several dozen tracks.
Grooveshark now has a library of over 15 million songs and sees over 35 million unique visitors monthly. However, its questionably legal service has resulted in its app getting rejected by Apple and even banned by the Android Market in the past. It’s now available as an app for jailbroken iPhones and via the mobile Web at m.grooveshark.com.
“Grooveshark’s fans love the selection, the app’s design and offline access the service provides via its apps and websites,” said an unnamed Fried Puppy Dog Discs representative adding “We gain access to a growing channel of 35 million uniques per month via a questionable business model.
“Let’s face it, what’s not to like about that?”

Update: Grooveshark PR challenged the “questionably legal” characterization and has issued an open letter in response.
