Holy cow, the RIAA has gotten youtube-dl taken off Github. DMCA notice

The RIAA just got GitHub to ban open source YouTube downloaders. They don't want anyone to share this code: mplayer $(echo -s "
$youtube_url | sed -n "/watch_fullscreen/s;.＊\(video_id.\+\)&title.＊;\1;p")&fmt=22") Woops.
This isn’t really a DMCA request. I don’t see an assertion that youtube-dl is an infringing work. Rather the claim is that it’s illegal per se
At the request of the recording industry, GitHub has removed public access to the youtube-dl repository, an incredibly useful open source tool for downloading local copies of videos from YouTube and other sites. Here's RIAA's takedown notice
