The streaming service continues to crack down on portals that allow people to download videos from it. As its latest attempt, YouTube demanded the operator of the video download service TubeNinja to cease the illegal activities or face potential legal action. However, TubeNinja has no plans to change anything in its operation.
YouTube accounts for more than a billion users and remains the largest video portal ever. It is a blessing to thousands of content creators, but there are also concerns among copyright owners – for example, music labels don’t like the fact that music videos can be easily downloaded from the website through external services.
YouTube is contacting such services and urging them to stop enabling downloads. TubeNinja was the most recently targeted website. YouTube claims that the video downloader violates the terms of service of both the site and the API by downloading any video that doesn’t have a download link listed on the site. YouTube warned the TubeNinja operator that if the site continues to operate, it may result in legal consequences.
However, the site operator is not going to take the functionality offline. He said he doesn’t use YouTube’s API and it’s his users who violate the terms of service of both YouTube and TubeNinja. The site owner doesn’t believe that YouTube has a very strong case. Besides, he points out that Google’s very own Chrome service has many plugins enabling the exact same functionality.
TubeNinja is not the first download service targeted by YouTube. 4 years ago, Google targeted Youtube-mp3.org with a similar threat, but that site remains one of the most used conversion tools with millions of daily visitors.

|"YouTube is contacting such services and urging them to stop enabling downloads" ... who needs to DOWNLOAD music videos to rip the music!|
Using THEIR rationale, every creator of Audio recording software in the world should be sued.
If I want to record some song from Youtube I just load up my audio recorder (in my case Goldwave), hit record, then play the clip, and save the result when it's finished ... perfect MP3 (after the beginning and end blank spaces are trimmed off and volume is adjusted).
SAME process can be used to record some songs from internet music streaming sites (but some don't show what's playing NEXT, so I usually record an hour at a time then edit out what I don't want later)
|haha youtube offers free downloads so whats the big deal?|
|Google it "YouTube likes to send legal threats to stream-ripping sites. The latest recipient, TubeNinja, is calling their bluff"|

|now they have drawn attention to how to down load videos off you tube people who didn't know about it will now go...REALY you can down load videos off you tube..mmmm i'm going to do that...in other words they are just adding to the so called problem ...should just shut up and leave everyone alone|
|Gypsey23 that makes no sense at all lol.. If they wait until everybody finds out a different way, then it'll be that much harder to combat. If they couldn't even keep PRISM a secret, how realistic is it to think the existence of a handy tool like a youtube downloader will not become common knowledge (as far as it isn't already)?|
|so the biggest pirates in the world are upset at being pirated....good grief......wtf ?|
talk about "tough titties"

Or not, screw YouTube.

|what do people think is happening when they stream videos online?|
protip: check your cached browser folder for the video you just streamed.
|Definetly Youtube would have a great loss if it would implement the imposibility of downloading videos from it, it won.t have the world as a backup, the viewers won.t be able to watch videos in different media, with the downloading option you will have a video in your harddrive for years, not a feww times i.ve downloaded videos from youtube and that video was deleted afterwards !||
