Stream-ripping music piracy growing ‘aggressively’
Posted on: 7 juillet 2017, by : Eamonn Forde

A pair of new studies commissioned by British collecting society PRS for Music and the UK’s Intellectual Property Office (IPO) claims that stream-ripping is now the “most aggressive” form of music piracy.
The term refers to the process where audio from music-streaming services is ‘ripped’ by users into digital files which can be downloaded and then transferred to their various devices.
PRS and the IPO commissioned two studies of the practice, from anti-piracy company INCOPRO and research firm Kantar Media. The first study examined traffic to stream-ripping websites and apps, while the latter surveyed more than 9,100 people about their online habits.
