    I ask this because i made a little script to download music from youtube videos, and my original goal was to get free music legally. I don't think its illegal, because if the videos are on youtube in the first place, they have to expect that people will try and do things like this.

    i think it is illegal, hence why youtube keeps removing anything that may breach copyright from videos

    Yeah good point, but shouldn't they remove all videos that have songs in them then? I'm pretty sure the music companies don't want the songs they own all over youtube.

    YouTube decreases the quality of Audio when videos are uploaded, so getting music straight from the site is pointless.

    Well you can use Spotify for free legal music but you can't download just listen.

    It doesn't matter if it is illegal or not, but it should be.



    Your ears should put you in jail for that.
