Why Can’t You Download Videos on YouTube? How a 20-Year-Old Law Stops youtube-dl Users AND Farmers
There’s a tool called “youtube-dl” that lets people download videos from YouTube and other sites. But the Recording Industry of America took it offline using a twenty-year old law called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. This same law stops farmers, creators, hackers, and security researchers from modifying or repairing devices they bought and own — everything from tractors and toasters to smart speakers and smart phones.
