Question

Why app MusicPlus can download music from Youtube?

Jul 16, 2019 1:42AM PDT

I'm using MusicPlus.
It can search, play & download any songs. As I know Youtube do not allows user to download videos. So is this illegal?

Link to app that violates the Youtube TOS removed by moderator.

For legal, you get with your lawyer.

But here we respect agreements or terms of use/service. There appear to be a lot of folk that don't want to do that and if they get too upset and flame, the discussion gets locked.

As I'm no lawyer, I can't answer the legal aspect. If you want to ignore agreements, that's your decision.

You can download for yourself and your private purposes only, not for reproduction! Remember this, please!
