    Illegal Download Site MP3Skull Is Closing For Good

    Bad news for those who are used to downloading their favorite music for free (but good news for record labels, artists, and the entire music industry): MP3Skull, one of the world’s most popular sites for illegal music downloads, is no more.

    The website just lost a legal battle that was being waged against it by most of the major players in the music industry. The RIAA (the Recording Industry Association of America), alongside the three largest record labels in the world—Sony, Warner, and Universal—all came together last year to sue the people behind the company, with the intention of shutting down the pirating hub.

    The court’s decision requires that the people behind MP3Skull pay the RIAA and the record labels the impressive sum of $22 million, which is about $150,000 per track for the 148 illegally downloaded songs that the plaintiffs entered into evidence. Of course there weren’t only 148 songs downloaded illegally on the website (there were probably millions), but those were enough to win the case. In addition to a monetary payout—which the winners will likely never actually receive—the judge ruled that the domain name must be turned over as well.

    Throughout the entire proceeding, nobody from MP3Skull responded to any of the claims made by the RIAA and company, nor did they actually ever appear in court. Since there was no response from the website to the lawsuit, the judge presiding over the case was able to make a decision fairly quickly, and today that ruling became clear.

    MP3Skull is just the latest illegal music site to lose a legal entanglement in the past few years. In 2015, popular streaming platform Grooveshark was forced to shutter after it lost its day in court, and Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom is currently in some trouble himself for creating and standing by the website.

    Sadly, even though the site has been legally shut down and the domain transferred, another version has already popped up. It is now located at, which may or may not last long. Piracy is still an enormous issue for the music industry, though it may be one that is slowly starting to go away naturally. As people around the world find their way to streaming platforms like Spotify, Pandora, and the like, there is less of a need for them to illegally download music, since they can listen to whatever they want for free on legitimate sites. The combination of the natural progression to streaming and several legal victories may show that pirating is on its way out.
