Although it is a positive to see this, my question is why were these Apps ever available in the itunes store to begin with? Why when you "Google" 'YouTube Free Download Software' does it take you directly to pages of software that allows you to illegally download copyrighted music and movie files from their own site, YouTube?

Some of these software programs are reviewed by CNET.

Fortune 500 Advertising is still rampant on pirate sites.

Why do highly respected, large corporations make money off the backs of hardworking artists? Is it all just power rules, step aside.

How can we possible expect the public to respect artists when huge, successful corporations don't. As a culture are we so enamored of wealth and greed that we look the other way and allow this to happen?

Why were these apps ever available, if they link to illegal downloading sites?

And yet 2 of the top ten music apps are still soundcloud rippers: http://liveappcharts.com/index.php?Region=143441&Chart=6011&Free=1
