Important Google Threatens To Sue YouTube

Google Threatens To Sue Huge YouTube MP3 Conversion Site


According to a letter seen by TorrentFreak, Google are threatening action against one of the web’s largest YouTube conversion sites. The site, which according to Google’s own stats is pulling in 1.3 million visitors every day, extracts MP3 audio from YouTube videos and makes it available for users to download. Google’s lawyers say this must stop, and have given the site seven days to comply.





Posted: 19 Jun 2012

YouTube is without doubt the biggest free resource of videos and music available online today. It can be enjoyed on the site itself, embedded in any webpage, or accessed via YouTube’s Application Programming Interface.

This API, as it’s better known, provides web developers with access to certain YouTube features, but like many free gifts it comes with certain strings attached, aka the YouTube Terms of Service (ToS).

One of the countless resources to use the YouTube API is YouTube-MP3.org, a huge site which according to Google’s DoubleClick service pulls in 1.3 million visitors every day.

What YouTube-MP3 does is straightforward. At one end a user feeds the site with a YouTube URL and after a couple of minutes the site spits out a standalone MP3 file, perfect for ripping the audio from pop videos.

.

Needless to say these sites are hugely popular, particularly with the younger generation. Just last month TorrentFreak spoke informally with a small youth group about their current music consumption habits and without exception they were all using some kind of YouTube conversion service and listening to that music on their cellphones.

Google, however, are not impressed with the activities of YouTube-MP3. In a letter dated June 8 sent to the site owner ‘Philip’ and shared with TorrentFreak, Associate Product Counsel at YouTube Harris Cohen makes the company’s position clear.

Citing the ToS for YouTube’s API, Cohen insists that offering any kind of service that allows YouTube content to be downloaded (as opposed to simply streamed) is prohibited.

Furthermore, Cohen underlines the fact that to “separate, isolate, or modify the audio or video components of any YouTube audiovisual content made available through the YouTube API” is forbidden, as is externally storing copies of YouTube content.

Continuing to violate these restrictions, Cohen warns, may result in “legal consequences” for YouTube-mp3. The site has been given seven days to comply.

Speaking with TorrentFreak, Philip told us that he sent a long response to Cohen providing him with details on YouTube-MP3, how the site services tens of millions of users, and asking for a call with YouTube to discuss the matter further.

YouTube, however, doesn’t appear to be in the mood for negotiation. Google has just blocked all of YouTube-MP3′s servers from accessing YouTube so currently the site has no MP3 download service to offer or indeed withdraw.

“We would estimate that there are roughly 200 million people across the world that make use of services like ours and Google doesn’t just ignore all those people, they are about to criminalize them. With the way they are interpreting and creating their ToS every one of those 200 million users is threatened to be sued by Google,” Philip adds.

Not surprisingly Google sees things from a different perspective. It says that part of its responsibility to people uploading content to YouTube is to give them tools to manage how their content is shared, monetized and generally displayed.

Some of those content owners, including the major record labels, frown on their music videos being used as a source for unauthorized MP3s, so they will welcome YouTube’s approach. Whether they prompted the action in the first instance is unknown.

Whatever the outcome in the case of YouTube-MP3, Google has a big task ahead if it is to end all similar services online. A simple search for “YouTube MP3″ with its own engine produces dozens of alternatives.

Just last year the world’s largest record labels sued another YouTube downloader site but getting Google to do the work at its root is probably much less costly.
END

Errr I thought Google now owns YouTube

Update: We have just been informed that Google may be targeting other similar services with the same message.

Update2: The owner of YouTube-MP3 has just informed us that his site does not use the API, but obtains videos by other means.

Update3: Music-Clips.net received a letter from Google as well.

Youtubemp3, is not owned by Google, which is why they are raising cane with the site before the copywrong gang comes for them. What Google is actually trying to accomplish, other than keeping their name clean, is beyond me.

Anyone with a modicum of tech/computer knowledge can do this for themselves with little or no effort.

Flashgot for Firefox will provide the download of the mp4, Format Factory, a free download for the search, will do the conversion and rip, giving you your own copy of an mp3 from the video in very short order. It doesn't take a website to do it.

Yes PB but we all know that Google dont have good techs!! Look at the mess they made, and the amount of complaints they received from all over the world, when they forced people to have the "New Look" gmail and wiped the existing one which was much better
I read that more than one person posted similar comments like

Quote:
"Did a bunch of schoolkids design this new one"
Man, I and so many totally agreed with that comment.
