RIAA, back on anti-piracy warpath, sues song-linking site MP3skull

25 06 2015

There’s a new public enemy #1 for US record labels when it comes to online piracy: a website called “MP3skull.”

The MP3skull site, which was sued for copyright infringement by the major US record labels on Friday, is a no-frills listing of hit songs available for download within a few clicks. The site hosts no content, instead linking to MP3 music files that are available on other sites. For instance, its current top hit, “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa, links to files hosted on sites like mp3light.net, freemp3.se, and trendingmp3.com.

“You can find your favorite songs in our multimillion database of quality mp3 links,” the site suggests on its front page. “We provide fast and relevant search… Hope you enjoy staying here!”
