One could argue that, and have a decent argument. That being said, there is so much material on YouTube that is homemade and where the makers themselves encourage download of same (whether in original format or otherwise) that it's impossible to say that downloading from YouTube is automatically questionable.
There is legitimate content that is entirely legal as well as pure piracy on YouTube. Individuals have to follow their own consciences about what they do with regard to downloading content that's on YouTube.
But since there is plenty of content that the creators of same have, for all practical intents and purposes, placed in the public domain discussion of downloading content from YouTube cannot automatically be classed as encouraging violation of copyright or intellectual property rights.
