RIAA, IFPI, and BPI File Lawsuit Against Top YouTube to MP3 Site

In a joint effort, The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) have taken Youtube-mp3.org to court. The RIAA announced the action against the service on their own website today. The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in California.

Youtube-mp3.org describes itself as “the easiest online service for converting videos to mp3.” All you’ll need to do is paste a YouTube URL into the search box to “convert the audiotrack of your videofile to mp3…and you will be able to download it.”
