The Popcorn Time of Music Launches, Sued Hours Later

Aurous is being described as the Popcorn Time of music. According to its founder Andrew Sampson, Aurous uses APIs from websites like Apple Music, Spotify and SoundCloud to create free, fast-streaming playlists. Aurous' intention was to create a compilation of streaming services in order to get as much free music out to the public.

While Aurous sounds like a great idea in theory, just hours after launching Aurous, Sampson was hit with a lawsuit. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) states that Sampson created this application with full knowledge of its infringement of copyright.

The lawsuit also states that a growing user base could lead to Sampson monetizing off of the app. “This service is a flagrant example of a business model powered by copyright theft on a massive scale,” stated an RIAA spokesperson.

Shortly after receiving a lawsuit, Andrew Sampson took to Twitter with the tweet “fight RIAA and win.”
