Google to prevent music ripping sites from YouTubeGoogle owns YouTube – and the Internet search giant is not too happy with the number of folks ripping off music in MP3 formats directly from YouTube videos, and they are about to do something about the situation. In fact, Google has plans to begin legal action against such a site – blocking YouTube-MP3.org from accessing YouTube while sending a warning to the rest that it is completely forbidden to modify YouTube clips, or to stash away external copies of such files. Apart from online web sites that perform music ripping from YouTube videos for free, there is also a bunch of other plugins for both Firefox and Chrome browsers which are capable of doing the same.

The owner of YouTube-MP3, however, claimed that Google is walking on the wrong side of morality this time around by attempting to criminalize approximately 200 million folks who make use of the YouTube-MP3 service. What do you think of this issue – and whose side are you on?
