    vixy.net and youtube

    We're getting a lot of staff asking to use vixy.net to rip youtube videos (as youtube is blocked by the web proxy).

    Question is, this is of pretty doubtful legality. Anyone else use this site or had requests to allow it?

    As vixy.net allows you to save content from youtube in an alternative format, it sounds about as legal as copying commercial DVDs!

    Re: vixy.net and youtube

    As far as I know and can tell, if youtube is filtered vixy.net doesn't work anyway. The whole copying thing is different from copying commercial DVDs as they are freely distributed, so it would depend on the terms of use that youTube have.

    But I could be wrong.

    Its a bit of a vague area. I don't condone the use of copied DVDs here but I can't actually stop it - I just won't support them!

    Same goes for this vixy.net, people are bringing in video clips made by that site that don't work, and expect me to fix it for them.
