Think about it..this could fuel Apple's anti jailbreak campaign that much more. Then will all be like "what happened to the jailbreak community?" "My iPhone is not nearly as good as it used to be" I think this could be the beginning of something really bad.
    That won't happen...you don't even need to be jailbroken on your iphone for that version of the hack

    But that won't stop them from using it as a leverage and blame it on jailbreaking.

For that matter, neither is downloading a Youtube video to your local hard drive. Actually, that's what already happens anyways; an video you watch in a browser is actually being stored in your local cache first, same as any other browser content. That said, I don't know what else that site is involved in, so I am not defending it as a whole, I'm just talking about the MP3-from-YouTube-videos aspect.

    Piracy is wrong period this is why jailbreaking gets a bad rap because people think its just stealing apps and stuff and that's not what it's about

    Yeah really. Gun is made for only one reason, to inflict injuries. Gun may be used to scare and thus not being used at all, but it scares just because it CAN kill. The LETHALITY of gun's usage is sole responsibility of the user.

    Same is with this hack. User who created it showed the skill, ability to create such tool, ability to circumvent. For a hacker (or whatever the term might be) there is no other way, rather than present working tool. I too can say - "yo, i created the hack that steals your data just by you looking at this message". But no one would believe (and for good reason) unless it really worked.

    So, again. Those who used the tool are snatches and criminals. Creator is only responsible for being irresponsible (doing something that is against a good will), nothing more. Had he created or had he not, those people who used the tool would have used any other tool, that would promise same results.

    You seem to be very ill informed. Saving a video from your browser iis in no way illegal. Frankly, it's no more illegal than right clicking an image on a web page and choosing save, or saving an entire page for off-line viewing. You don't need any permission to do that, as this is expressly protected under fair use.

    confucious, I was speaking mainly of the United States, seeing as that's the country YouTube (owned by Google, Inc) is based in. Even if that wasn't the case, it would not matter. You cannot ignore the fact that anything you load in a web browser is actually already being downloaded to your computer, so saying that "it's illegal to downloading from " makes no sense. It's already there, sitting in your cache, so it's already there, on your hard drive. Therefore, saving it to another location on your drive is no different than what already occurs.

    But even if that wasn't the case, you'd still have a hell of a time building a case against anyone in any country where one can freely use a VCR or DVR to record what you see on TV. Please read off famous Betamax case, which set a lot of precedent for fair use, for copying/recording from a public medium for your own personal use.

    Here in the UK it is illegal to RIP a CD - they are working on changing the law to make it legal. We have no 'fair use' law, but here things are not illegal until they are made so.
    CD ripping is an anomilly that will be changed but Americans find it very difficult to understand UK law - it is usually just common sense.
    Or a donkey.

    You cannot compare downloading a video that already is downloaded by the in-browser player to be the same as downloading pirated content. It is more akin to recording music from the radio, or video from TV. The question is if the source of the content was legal in the first place; that is, distribution.
