GitHub takes down YouTube video obtain instruments after an RIAA discover

You won’t discover the source code for YouTube-DL, a popular software that can be used to download videos from YouTube, and for some of its forks and copies on GitHub anymore. When you go to their pages, you’ll discover a notice that says the “repository is unavailable due to DMCA takedown” instead. That’s as a result of the Microsoft-owned code hosting platform took all of them down after getting a legal request from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Public Knowledge Legal Director John Bergmayer explained on Twitter that the letter wasn’t precisely a DMCA takedown notice regardless of what GitHub posted on the supply codes’ now-empty pages. The affiliation stated in its letter that YouTube-DL violates part 1201 of the US copyright legislation and therefore is unlawful in and of itself. It argued that the instrument violates copyright legislation because it’s clearly meant to “circumvent the technological protection measures used by authorized streaming services such as YouTube” and to “reproduce and distribute music videos and sound recordings owned by [RIAA’s] member companies without authorization for such use.”
