Google going after YouTube MP3 ripping sites

Posted on Wednesday, June 20 2012 @ 12:15:26 CEST by

TorrentFreak reports Google has issued a cease and desist letters to YouTube MP3 conversion websites. These sites enable users to convert YouTube music clips into downloadable MP3 files, but Google is now threatening these services with legal action.
Needless to say these sites are hugely popular, particularly with the younger generation. Just last month TorrentFreak spoke informally with a small youth group about their current music consumption habits and without exception they were all using some kind of YouTube conversion service and listening to that music on their cellphones.

Google, however, are not impressed with the activities of YouTube-MP3. In a letter dated June 8 sent to the site owner ‘Philip’ and shared with TorrentFreak, Associate Product Counsel at YouTube Harris Cohen makes the company’s position clear.

Citing the ToS for YouTube’s API, Cohen insists that offering any kind of service that allows YouTube content to be downloaded (as opposed to simply streamed) is prohibited.
