Spotify, record labels and music publishers have a new mole to wack - pirate streaming. A simple to install script, openly available for just $38, has spawned dozens of well designed Spotify-like streaming music sites that are free and easy to use.
For $38, Youtubify allows anyone to create their own music streaming service in minutes with no coding knowledge. And as it claims in its own promotional material, "it has an impressive feature set that rivals and even surpasses other biggest streaming services on the market."
