A chain of music recording labels have filed a lawsuit against a Tokyo-based YouTube to MP3 converting website, TubeFire. They are suing for $3 million in damages and want the site to be shut down indefinitely.
ha i hope they lose, damn greedy companys....
Companies just need to grow with the technology. Cant rely on old dinosaur standards.
ok, so i can use other sites, download the youtube video to HD video format, and then rip the sound to mp3 and voila, i have the song. stop suing for bullshit. seriously. sue youtube for getting your shit there in the first place. once its on the net for all to see, it belongs to the people. why do companies need to learn this the hard way.
Yah it's called YOUtube, not greedycorporatebastardstube
why are they greedy, they promote and distribute artists's songs. It's a business.
Man i got my own personal converters I dont need any site. I hope the music companies get what comes to em, the industry needs to change i dont buy cds nor do i trust my information with apple so i have no legal means except amazon and going to the store. you can find almost any song on the dam internet anyway. and clipconverter is a way better it became what dirpy was.
I don't get why it's okay to listen to free music on YouTube and the radio, but downloading it is not.
realdownloader says hello.
There are so many other ways to convert music from YouTube, why the fuck would they single out one? Honestly it's not preventable, if people want to get free music they'll find a way. Bunch of greedy dumbasses.
They singled out this one because it is Japan based.
if the music industry wants to protect their god damned piece of shit no good copyrights that the ARTISTS slaved to create so that they could continue to line their own pockets from the decade after decade of unadulterated milking.. then they should lobby against hardware manufacturers! take away our memory stocks and copying devices or the ability to copy data... problem solved. I know... it aint that simple... but neither is what they are doing.
I would be fine with this if it was back in the 50's where people actually sang but today it is to easy to get in the music industry because everything is computerized that's why they have song that stretch up to 10min , back in the 50's songs were on average 2minutes and they sang the whole song , and they never made the money they do today . The companies need to get with the times . Hell more then half of the artiest don't even write there own songs , they write the first single to get there foot in the door and the rest is by someone else.
oh lordy, their are other programs besides this one, that company is stupid for suing.
