One of our readers, Hank, has asked us with a question: Is it legal to download and reuse YouTube video? Well, I believe there are a lot of YouTube visitors also have the same question. Actually, there are two kinds of license types on YouTube video. Those types can indicate whether a video is legal to download and reuse or not.
When users open a video page on YouTube, users can check the video license on the bottom of its description. When the video license written as “Creative Commons Attribution License,” it means users can download and reuse the video legally. If the video license written as “Standard YouTube License,” it means users MIGHT not to download and reuse the video.
However, “Standard YouTube License” is the default setting for all video uploader. If they are not change this setting when uploading a video, the video will always use the “Standard YouTube License.”
I hope this explanation is useful for users who still confused about the YouTube video license.
