In view of these well-founded interests, it is quite understandable that corresponding apps are not wanted. But what is actually the legal situation apart from the economic interests of Google, Apple and Co.? Here, first and foremost, the copyright plays a significant role. But even more exciting are the terms and conditions (T&C) of YouTube itself. This is because they make it clear that downloading the videos located on the portal is prohibited. The video portal even makes it clear in its terms and conditions that it can take action against such efforts within the scope of its possibilities.
