Danish Court Announces ‘Illegal’ Site Translating YouTube Videos to MP3

For the first time in the world, the court of an country has annulled an interesting decision by announcing a site illegally downloading voices in MP3 format.

Today, the internet is accessible almost everywhere, but some of us still keep the archivist spirit. If you think that the CD purchasing period is behind, you want to upload the album or pieces uploaded to the media like MP3 to your computer, like Convert2MP3.

The Danish court declared Convert2MP3 illegal at the end of the trial. In addition, after the decision, the court ordered the internet service provider to ban access to the site. This decision is the first and only decision in the world taken in this area. Earlier, in 2016, a similar case to YouTube-MP3 was filed in the US, but the process ended with the parties’ agreement before the court continued.

Since Denmark is a European Union country, there is a possibility that this decision will spread by wave. The only alternative in this area is Convert2MP3, but it seems worrying that even this simple process, which was not previously considered illegal, is banned.
