A SPANISH court has blocked the closure of a website which contains more than four million audio files.

The Ministry of Culture had declared Goear.com (which also has a mobile app)  illegal, only for the Madrid Court to overrule the decision.

The website includes clips distributed by political parties, NGOs, as well as free educational podcasts and a vast amount of music from more than 50,000 artists.

The Sinde-Wert Commission requested the website be closed as it did not own the rights to all of its content, because files are uploaded by users.

It is an important website for up-and-coming artists attempting to promote their music to a wider audience.
