"Since 2011, we have begun the transition to legitimate use of content owners. Cooperation with the major studios allows VK to post exclusive tracks, announce new albums and artists to improve the service as a whole.
In this case, we are forced to take on certain obligations in regard to combating copyright infringement. This means that VK cannot save audio public API for third-party applications in its current form", — stated in the message of the social network.
Team VK understands that as a result, many apps may completely stop working or lose a significant part of its capabilities, but in most cases, unfortunately, will not be able to offer an alternative.
