YouTube: Music industry sues downloader
The German service Convert2MP3, with almost 700 million hits last year one of the most used YouTube converters worldwide, has discontinued its service. The operators of the site have reached an agreement with the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) and the Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI - Federal Association of the Music Industry) within the framework of legal proceedings.
Convert2MP3 was sued by German music companies for copyright infringements before the Hamburg Regional Court. The settlement now reached provides for the global deactivation of the Convert2MP3 web app.
Users in Concern! Are YouTube downloaders illegal
In the USA, it is the big music companies Universal Music, Sony Music and Warner Music that are fighting against the streamrippers. They are supported by the German Federal Association of the Music Industry and the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry). A broad front that wants to ban the popular tools. The big question is: Are YouTube downloaders illegal at all?
Streamripping is a thorn in the side of the music representatives because they only earn money if someone watches the song directly on YouTube. After the download no more money flows - but the download is not illegal. Although YouTube prohibits the download in the terms and conditions, this is legally a grey area. According to lawyer Christian Solmecke the YouTube download falls under the famous "making a private copy" and is therefore permissible, as he explains in the following video.
