Grooveshark co-founder Josh Greenberg discovered dead in Florida home.

Josh Greenberg was 19 years old when he and a friend founded Grooveshark — a music-sharing Web site that might have made them tech pioneers — in a University of Florida dorm room in 2006.

In May, the site was shuttered, and Greenberg and co-founder Sam Tarantino issued an apologetic statement after a federal judge ruled that they had willfully violated copyright law. “We started out nearly ten years ago with the goal of helping fans share and discover music,” they wrote in an apology. “But despite the best of intentions, we made very serious mistakes. We failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the vast amount of music on the service.” As part of the settlement, the company agreed to hand over its Web site, mobile apps and intellectual property.
