Stream Ripping Problem Worse Than Pirate Sites

After years of blaming "pirate sites" for all their problems, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry is now saying that stream ripping is worse than pirate sites. Guess where all the kids are ripping content from? YouTube. Piracy is now YouTube's fault.

Research commissioned by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry has found that half of 16 to 24-year-olds use stream ripping tools to copy music from sites like YouTube. The industry group says that the problem has grown so much that in volume terms it has overtaken downloading from 'pirate' sites.
