Is it le­gal to down­load YouTube videos?

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - EXPLORE -

It's against YouTube's terms and con­di­tions, which say you can only use its con­tent for stream­ing, and you could ar­gue that it's un­eth­i­cal too – many artists de­pend on YouTube's ad­verts for their in­come, so any ad-free play­back you do is de­priv­ing them of money. We sus­pect the le­gal­ity of this is sim­i­lar to ad-block­ing: con­tent own­ers would rather you didn't do it and try their best to stop the tools from work­ing, but there's not a lot they can do to pre­vent you watch­ing videos ad-free if your lis­ten­ing comes un­der ‘fair use’ in copy­right terms. Then again we're not lawyers, so pro­ceed with this at your own risk.
