Major labels like Universal, Warner Bros. and Sony are cracking down on illegal rips of music from their roster and this time, the major three are targeting Youtube ripping website YouTube-mp3.org. In a lawsuit, that was filed this week, they state that, "Stream ripping has become a major threat to the music industry, functioning as an unlawful substitute for the purchase of recorded music and the purchase of subscriptions to authorized streaming services."

They also allege that German citizen, Philip Matesanz, the owner of the site, is single-handedly responsible for around 40% of all unlawful streaming worldwide. That's a huge responsibility.

For those that haven't used a site like YouTube-mp3.org before, it's pretty self-explanatory. They allow users to convert YouTube links to MP3 files so you can download them for free.
