Are You YouTubing The Right Way?

Recently BIT has received several requests from agencies to gain access to YouTube video downloader software. Essentially, this software allows you to make copies of YouTube videos.

People have used them in PowerPoint presentations, employee training sessions, software tutorials. YouTube videos can be utilized throughout a variety of circumstances, making them invaluable. 
Although YouTube video downloader software is highly useful, according to YouTube’s Terms of Service… It’s also illegal.

Here’s the short of it: Unless you have permission from YouTube or the person that owns the video, downloading YouTube materials is illegal.

If you have YouTube Video Downloader software installed on your machine, it will need to be removed.  BIT will be in touch in the near future with those that have the software.  If you have a need for a video from YouTube, please contact YouTube or the owner of the content to request a copy.
