The Recording Industry Association of America is going after companies that allow you to convert YouTube videos into MP3s. At least the RIAA isn't suing people that are using the conversion tools....yet.

[] is raking in millions on the backs of artists, songwriters, and labels. We are doing our part, but everyone in the music ecosystem who says they believe that artists should be compensated for their work has a role to play. It should not be so easy to engage in this activity in the first place, and no stream-ripping site should appear at the top of any search result or app chart.
