Grooveshark first brushed it off as a simple 'error,' but this was no accident. In fact, Facebook has now confirmed to Digital Music News that the Grooveshark app has been deliberately banned based on infringement concerns.  "We have removed the Grooveshark app due to a copyright infringement complaint we received," a Facebook spokesperson told us, on the record. 

The source of that complaint was not disclosed, though the dots are pretty easy to connect on this one.  And that could become a disastrous problem: early indicators show a significant drop in Grooveshark's traffic, not to mention confused users and a vanished app.    

But this goes beyond an off'd app: Facebook has also taken the extreme step of completely disabling its login authorizations on the main Grooveshark site and web-based app.   So here's what happens if you try to log into Grooveshark using your Facebook ID.
