Its not like I’m doing anything wrong

Heard this one:?

“There is a really nice App that allows you to Rip YouTube videos which you can play back to your class, it lets you get round the problem when your IT department are being really difficult


When I say rip – it sounds very dodgy, what I mean is just copy them to my iPad.”


I think that the relevant quotes from the terms and conditions on YouTube are:

  • 4C. You agree not to access Content through any technology or means other than the video playback pages of the Service itself, the Embeddable Player, or other explicitly authorized means YouTube may designate
  • 5C. You agree not to circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Service or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any Content or enforce limitations on use of the Service or the Content therein.

I heard today of one school that has told it’s staff that it will not assist with the downloading of YouTube videos and that ALL materials used in lessons should be copyright valid. 

Where do you stand?
