  • 主流唱片公司一起對非法串流翻錄網站提起訴訟

      201808/1805:08

    ◎環球、華納、索尼和其他大唱片公司對兩家俄羅斯的非法串流翻錄網站FLVTO.biz和2conv.com提起訴訟。

    ◎根據向維吉尼亞州東區法院提出的訴訟文件表示,這些網站讓用戶從YouTube上的影片中翻錄音頻,且加起來每個月有接收到超過1.2億名的訪客;只透過一些快速的複製和貼上網址的動作,YouTube的影片就會轉換為永久性的MP3格式。這是繼2016年針對世界上最大的串流翻錄網站YouTube-mp3.org的侵權行為提出類似訴訟後,兩年來再度有的大規模訴訟;YouTube-mp3.org後來遵從了判決並同意關閉網站。

    ◎與其他串流翻錄網站不同,儘管RIAA和IFPI都曾發出警告信,FLVTO.biz和2conv.com仍繼續其網站的活動。

    詳細全文:

    Universal, Warner Bros, Sony and other big record labels filed a lawsuit on Friday (Aug. 3) against two Russia-based illegal stream-ripping websites, FLVTO.biz and 2conv.com.

    The websites allow users to rip the audio from videos on YouTube and combined receive more than 120 million monthly visitors, according to the suit filed in the Eastern District of Virginia. With some quick copy and pasting of URLs, a YouTube video is turned into a permanent MP3 format. The suit comes two years after a similar 2016 filing against the world's largest stream-ripping site, YouTube-mp3.org for copyright violations. The site complied and agreed to shut down.

    Unlike other steam-ripping sites, FLVTO.biz and 2conv.com have continued their site's activity despite warning letter from the RIAA and IFPI.

    "These sites have no place in today's music market where fans have access to millions of songs from dozens of legitimate services that pay creators and value their work, all at the tap of a finger," RIAA said in a comment. "This action should serve as an unmistakable warning to operators of similar sites that schemes to rob music creators and profit from the theft of their music will not be tolerated."
