Top MP3 Ripping Site Convert2MP3 Shut Down

Convert2MP3 has been hit by a legal action from the IFPI and Germany's BVMI.

Frances Moore, Chief Executive, IFPI, said in a statement:

"Stream ripping is a threat to the entire music ecosystem. Sites such as Convert2MP3 show complete disregard for the rights of artists and record companies and take money away from those creating and investing in music. The successful outcome if this case sends a clear signal to other stream ripping sites that they should stop their copyright infringing activities or face legal action.”
