Also, is it illegal to talk about downloading audio or video from Youtube. I'm not perfectly sure of any of this because a user of this website has justified downvoting many of my questions and answers because talking about this is supposedly illegal. Meanwhile, I thought if you could record audio tracks from the radio without anyone calling it illegal(except for some of the users on this website) then you could download audio tracks from youtube in the same manner.

After some research I have found out that it IS illegal to download copyrighted audio/video off youtube. I have no idea why this does not apply to radio or TV etc. Although I wouldn't count talking about downloading youtube videos (The the broadest sense) as talking about illegal content.

It is illegal to download music off of youtube. It is not illegal talking about it, that is absurd. It would be likened to saying just asking is it illegal to steal a car, is in itself illegal.

Mozilla had an add-on that I tried today and was able to download clips as mpeg files. Plus, a professor gave a presentation about how we can download, edit, and re-upload videos, like a wiki-learning community. He never mentioned a word about illegal. The add-on works great w/no .exe files to run.
