YouTube mp3.org: One of the most popular free sites for converting YouTube videos to MP3 can be closed soon by the music industry.
The administrator YouTube-mp3.org, who was accused by the Recording Industry Association of America or RIAA last year, apparently agreed to surrender his site as reported by TorrentFreak. So the RIAA seems to hold the domain.
In return for no further prosecution, YouTube mp3 will stop working. It looks like it works at this time, but when you try to convert a video, you get an error message.
Meanwhile RIAA it will not only take control of the domain. According to the announcement published by TorrentFreak (PDF), the webmaster should not "design, develop, offer or exploit any technology or service that permits or facilitates a practice commonly known as 'streamripping.'"
