The music industry has achieved that the largest Streamripper service Youtube-mp3.org is no longer accessible on the Internet. This was announced by the Federal Association of the Music Industry (BVMI) on 7 September 2017. Earlier, it was reported that an agreement was reached with the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) and BPI (British Phonographic Industry) against the German operator for the closure of the service.

The music companies and labels UMG Recordings, Capitol Records, Warner Bros., Sony Music, Arista Records, Atlantic Records and others filed the lawsuit at the California District Court. The German operator Philip Matesanz and his company PMD Technologies UG have to pay an undisclosed payment to the music industry.
BVMI Managing Director Florian Drücke said: "Against this backdrop, comparable offers on the Internet will have to question their 'business model' again." In Germany, streamripping has been established for many years, "because, unlike, for example, in the United States or the UK, private copying is basically permitted, which makes legal enforcement more difficult in this environment."

A corresponding draft was at the European level and the Federal Association of the Music Industry expected "support from the Federal Government in this regard".
In Germany, the provisions of Paragraph 53 (1) of the Copyright Act apply. The paragraph allows "individual reproductions of a work by a natural person for private use on any medium, provided that they are not directly or indirectly intended for profit, unless a copy which is manifestly unlawfully made or made public is used for reproduction".

Baden-Württemberg's Minister for Consumer Affairs Alexander Bonde (Greens) and Gerd Billen, then CEO of the Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverbands (VZBV), had already demanded a new copyright law four years ago. The core was the right to private copyrights, which were to be legally anchored as an indispensable, fully-fledged user right.
