  • Agreed. @ano95: Please see the following Meta Q&A for an explanation of the problems associated with "legal advice": meta.law.stackexchange.com/q/13/10 You might be able to construct a more generic question that you will still find informative.

Given that Google (the company that owns YouTube) provides instructions for this it would seem they are offering a safe harbor if you follow their instructions, regardless of any other law.

Of course you should always review the Terms of Service governing the contents and APIs you are using.
