Here's something relevant...
"The offense we committed was creating a small tool that lets people
download YouTube videos to their hard drives. We referenced the tool
in a recent post that walked people through the process of moving
YouTube Videos to their iPod.
We created the tool only after a careful review of YouTube's Terms of
Use, which state "If you download or print a copy of the Content for
personal use, you must retain all copyright and other proprietary
notices contained therein." The letter, however, states "The YouTube's
functionality of the YouTube website via streaming on the Web, and it
disallows the functionality of downloading videos." Not only am I
conflicts with the language I did find and quoted above."
So... that would imply that mean YouTube is applying a TPM wouldn't it?!
