Is it legal?
There is a ton of good content on YouTube, but copyright infringement claims and DMCA take-down notices mean that any given video can disappear at any time. Having a local copy of the video means you won't lose access if YouTube removes the video from their site. And if you convert the video to any format, you can view it more comfortably for your needs. Doing this appears to be in compliance with YouTube's Terms of Use, as long as you do not distribute the videos to others, and you retain any copyright notices on the files (see sections 2A and 4). UpdateStar does not take any responsibility to content you are attempting to download, since we can't handle it. We strongly recommend you not to download any copyrighted material, music videos, etc. due to law restrictions. UpdateStar Video Converter doesn't change content of any downloaded videos; it may only convert it to different video file format for more comfortable video watching. UpdateStar has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third parties.
