YouTube-MP3, one of the most top free YouTube Mp3 convert and download sites is soon shutting down, thanks to the music industry. The Anti-piracy group led by RIAA, the chief arm of music industry’s anti-piracy drive have managed to get a court order from a federal court in the United States to shut YouTube-MP3.org down.
The anti-piracy groups who have their eyes peeled on torrent websites have now turned to the YouTube to MP3 and MP4 converter websites. According to Torrent Freak, the admin of YouTube-mp3.org — who was sued by the Recording Industry Association of America last year — has apparently agreed to hand his site over to the RIAA in return for a certain unknown settlement.
According to the settlement documentation, the site’s operator is restrained from “knowingly designing, developing, offering, or operating any technology or service that allows or facilitates the practice commonly known as ‘streamripping.’”
Users may still see the familiar homepage of YouTube-mp3.org but as soon as you try to input a YouTube URL and try to convert, you will get a popup indicating “this service is not available from your jurisdiction.”
