The many headed Hydra

That is I’m talking about sites that allow you to get a youtube video link, paste it in and the site strips the audio out and converts it to mp3 format.

I know youtube-mp3.org came under the heavy hand of U.S. Copyright law. And that’s ok – there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of sites that do the same thing.

The genie is out of the bottle. And law enforcement and our justice system don’t have the resources necessary to combat this threat to the entrenched industry here in the U.S.

They could have sold the tracks for 10 cents, 25 cents – but no thanks to Apple it’s a buck or more per track. And so people will do what people will do. You’ve got to fill up the music library.
