    Hi forum.. are sites like keepvid and save-video considered illegal? If so how do they stay up and why would google index them?

    I think it depends on the law of the country, where those pages are hosted.

    Of course, it's illegal. Copyright issues.

    Never too long in one place.
    Crap answers in this thread. Why would it be illegal? No copyright issues to watch, ergo no copyright issues to download it.

    It could be in conflict with YT Terms and Conditions though, but T&C are not law.

    You can naturally not use YT trademarks in your URL though.
