Music labels from multiple countries are taking on a major piracy site in an LA court. Fourteen labels are suing YouTube-mp3.org, a website based in Germany that lets users download songs they find on YouTube. Instead of just streaming the music legally on YouTube, users get a permanent file they can listen to anywhere for free, cheating the music companies out of royalties.

The stream-ripping site supposedly has more than 60 million users every month, and the music group will sue for £150,000 for every incident of piracy.

YouTube isn’t associated with the ripping site, and the company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
