YouTube Download Sites Are Biggest Piracy Threat To Music Industry

Websites dedicated to “stream ripping” music from YouTube represent the biggest threat to the global music business, industry figures have warned, as a major crackdown seeks to address it.

Sites that allow YouTube videos to be converted into an MP3 file and illegally downloaded to someone’s phone or computer are attracting millions of visitors, with estimates suggesting that a third of 16-24-year-olds in the UK have ripped music from the Google-owned platform.

In 1969 I had one about like this.

It was the biggest threat to the music industry. And every audio recording device made since then. :|


After 50 years I've decided they might have been crying "Wolf."

We have that in common. In 77 I bought one of those from a guy in Boulder Colorado.

After reading the newspaper ad and talking to him on the phone I went over to his place to look at it, and buy it for $60. I got there and before I could walk up to his apartment I had to push a button and talk more with him through the wall. Then it was like a jail, a locked door buzzed to let me in.

I had never seen anything like that before.

I bought my reel-to-reel used for $100 about 1972. I taped my albums onto tape reels and would play them for two hours rather than having to constantly change albums/records when they finished playing. I later bought a pair of light-organ speakers, like the ones below, for about $50 which would flash/blink to the rhythm of the music. It was fun to turn down the lights at night and play the reel-to-reel with speakers providing a light show.

Just before I left for basic training, my reel-to-reel broke so I gave it to my brother, who worked in electronics, to see if he could fix it. On my first leave home he told me he couldn't fix it and it would have cost more to have a professional fix it than it was to buy a new one.
