Collaboration with YouTube and SoundCloud key to tackling stream-ripping piracy
Posted on: 7 juillet 2017, by : Eamonn Forde

Earlier today, we covered a new report co-published by PRS for Music and the UK’s Intellectual Property Office (IPO) about ‘stream-ripping’ piracy – where music from streaming services is converted into downloads to keep.
Following the publication of that report, the pair held an event at PRS for Music’s London office this morning to discuss the findings, and answer questions about what happens next.
The key question from Music Ally’s perspective: if stream-ripping has indeed grown by 141% between 2014 and 2016 in the UK, as the report claims, how does the industry plan to tackle the problem? The main answer involves the API keys used by the stream-ripping services.
