YouTube Ripping Website Sued by Music Labels

YouTube Ripping Website Sued by Music Labels

YouTube-MP3, the world's leading YouTube ripping service, is sued by a group of anti-piracy groups: the IFPI, RIAA, and BPI in the United Kingdom announced launching a lawsuit to protect the rights of artists and recording labels. YouTube-MP3 accounts for 60m monthly visitors and is reported to generate “millions” in advertising revenues.


According to a recent research of the IFPI, 50% of 16 to 24-year-olds use stream-ripping tools to copy music from websites like YouTube. This problem has become even more serious than downloading from pirate websites in volume terms. This is why recording labels decided to take action and sue the world’s largest YouTube ripping service YouTube-MP3 (YTMP3), its operator Philip Matesanz and Does 1-10 for copyright infringement.

They complain that the online service removes the audio tracks from YouTube videos, converts them to an MP3 format and then distributes them to Internet users in the US. The plaintiffs allege that the website generates advertising revenues through attracting users by their intellectual property. As a result, YouTube-MP3 is being sued for direct, contributory, vicarious and inducement of copyright infringement, and circumvention of technological measures.

The plaintiffs are also demanding a preliminary and permanent injunction forbidding YouTube-MP3 from further infringing their rights and ask to surrender its domain name. Recording labels announced they started a coordinated action to protect the rights of artists from the infringements of the world’s single-largest stream ripping service.

No avatarWe may well becoming towards the end of an era of torrent sites as more and more fall by the way side or get blocked by countries (long live ET though!) However, users just find another way.

Streaming sites for example are popping up all over the place and as far as downloading from YouTube goes - there are still dozens of ways of doing this with software and direct downloaders via websites.

Two publications here in the UK (Web User and Computer Active) that ironically some users upload to ET for sharing often even have the latest links to the best and latest ways to download from YouTube, Vimeo and so on either via simple to install apps and extensions for your browser or by just visiting some sites that will do it for you when you just supply them with the video link.

How either of these publications get away with sharing this information is baffling as these magazines are in nearly all major magazine retailers and often front page headlines often include "Download Anything" or specifically "get any You Tube video" and the like.

Google Drive even has a supplied app for downloading videos posted on Facebook as well as different video and audio converter apps.

For every Napster that was closed down, it seems that the amount of options has multiplied. I hope that musicians can continue to embrace You Tube and look at as a way of spreading their work and not that people are just acquiring their songs without paying for them.

Sadly though, it does appear right now (especially with You Tube's new "Heroes" or snitch program) that the day will come when either all well known music will be gone or will only be available on You Tube as a pay per view option.

This may only drive viewers more underground and onto lesser known streaming sites and then things get even more complicated as the number of sites and apps to use to copy files from those sites no doubt will increase again.

Selsley avatarfunny that people would use a website to download from youtube.
maxthon cloud browser v4.1.0.4000 has a media sniffer that will download any media found on a webpage its especially good for youtube where it streams from a full file, but not so good for other sites that stream live as it strams in packets and you get a ton of tiny files.

Crash1 avatarI like that bit that says "Recording labels announced they started a coordinated action to protect the rights of artists from the infringements ..."
The real truth is they're protecting THEIR OWN profits.
From what the ARTISTS have said in the past, they only get about 10-15% of any money made by their track from the Record Label (5-10% more if they WROTE the track), the LABEL pockets the remaining 75-90%.

Anyway, using YoutubeDownloader Pro you can rip any video to mp3 on your own ... you don't NEED a 3rd party site to do it for you. (YTD Pro is available on ET.)

b2ux avatarso true and the proof was just on youtube last week.. they took down a song the artist and owner of the song he wrote himself and put up for viewing and downloading ricca said it was there property now he sueing them for there falsehoods .... also so you know a lot of dmac's are also being thrown out of court .... as of now your ip does not mean its you downloading ie: supreme court ruling ....
Here's an example of how imprecise IP addresses can be in pinpointing a specific computer: In 2012, law enforcement tried to catch a person making online threats to local police in Indiana by tracing the person's IP address to a specific house. After a SWAT team broke down the door and tossed a couple of flashbangs into the entryway, they realized they'd gotten the wrong place. The home had an open wifi router. The threats were coming from down the street.

Recently, some judges have become more wary about granting subpoenas to companies who come to them with only IP addresses. Last month, a judge in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington at Seattle dismissed a case brought by the studio that produced Elf-Man—a direct-to-video Christmas movie—against 152 anonymous defendants. According to the judge, "simply identifying the account holder associated with an IP address tells us very little about who actually downloaded Elf-Man." In May 2013, a federal judge in California came down hard and issued a $81,320 fine against copyright holders that were "porno trolling" or going after people accused of downloading porn illegally. According to the judge, the plaintiff, Ingenuity 13 LLC, relied too heavily on IP addresses and did not do an adequate enough investigation to bring claims. And in May 2012, a federal district judge in New York reached a similar conclusion about IP addresses, as did a federal judge in Illinois the year before. Wagner notes, "Judges are increasingly realizing that [IP addresses] don't have a high degree of reliability, and they're not an accurate representation of who has control of the computer."
