It is illegal for you to distribute copyrighted files without permission. When You download the Software you agree that you will not use the Software for the purpose of copyright infringement.
Original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain intellectual compositions are protected by copyright law. If a person publicly performs, reproduces, distributes copies or displays works without consent of the copyright owner, they could be in violation of the law.

You agree that any and all downloading will be limited to time-shifting, personal, private and non-commercial uses only. You agree that you will not use the Software to make more than one download recording of any Internet broadcast. You agree that you will not share, distribute, or broadcast any files downloaded with the Software in any way. You agree not to keep the recording any longer than is reasonably necessary in order to listen to or view the broadcast at a more convenient time.
The Software and Website is a search technology that produces search results referencing media information and content located across the Internet. The Software and Website do not share, host, store, or provide any kind of content, including but not limited to, any video, audio or game content. The services provided by the Software are based on third party-websites. Any linked websites provided in the Software's search results are in no way connected to, under the control of, or associated with iVideo Converter. The Software is designed purely as an internet search, discovery and information tool. We are not a "file sharing" site, or software, whether peer-to-peer or otherwise.
The Software allows users to "time shift" and record Internet broadcasts. Time shifting allows a consumer view and/or listen to a work or sound recording that is publically broadcast, to a more convenient time for the consumer.
It is not an infringement of copyright to time shift a communication broadcast and to reproduce a work or sound recording, if
All multimedia, informational, educational, or social network content accessed by you while using the iVideo Converter Website and/or Software's search functionality is hosted and provided by external websites whose content is available to the general public. Those websites and their owners and operators are responsible for the content being hosted, stored, served and/or re-transmitted and such sites have the responsibility to serve and distribute the multimedia content they offer to the public. iVideo Converter and/or its developers do not maintain any relationship with the third party websites and therefore cannot be responsible for or control the content available on those sources. Because iVideo Converter does not own or have editorial control over third party websites, it is possible that Your Internet searches will link you to files on third party websites that have been posted without the copyright owner's authorization. You are responsible for ensuring that your activities comply with the law. To protect such copyright holders iVideo Converter supports DMCA Takedown Notice(s) and does not support technologies to circumvent Digital Rights Management "DRM" security encryption.
Links on the Website or made via the Software to third party websites are not referrals or endorsements of the linked entities or their websites and the contents of such websites, but are provided solely for Your Internet search convenience. The Website and the Software's search results clearly list the third party website source of all the multimedia content provided and it is Your responsibility to read and accept of the "terms of service" of each third party website before using the Software to access any content.
iVideo Converter is committed to respecting and protecting the legal rights of copyright owners. As such, iVideo Converter adheres to the following notice and take down policy, in full compliance with Sections 512(c) and/or 512(d) of the DMCA (17 U.S.C. . 512 et seq.). If you believe any of the Website's content infringes upon Your intellectual property rights, please submit a notification alleging such infringement (hereafter a "DMCA Takedown Notice"). To be valid, a DMCA Takedown Notice must (i) be provided to iVideo Converter's designated agent ("Copyright Agent"), as set forth below, and (ii) include the following:
iVideo Converter's Copyright Agent for the purpose of receiving DMCA Takedown Notices is: iVideo Converter Support. Please email all takedown notices to: support[at]ivideoconverter.com. For clarity, DMCA Takedown Notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, online purchases or other communications should be directed to the applicable customer service links posted on the Website. You acknowledge that in order for iVideo Converter to be authorized to take any action, Your DMCA Takedown Notice must comply with all of the foregoing requirements.
The Software is compliant with the fair use "time shifting" provisions of the United States Supreme Court's decision in the case of Sony Corp. of America v. Universal City Studios, Inc., 464 U.S. 417 (1984), (referred to hereafter as the "Betamax Decision"). Time shifting is the recording of programming to a storage medium to be viewed or listened to at a time more convenient to the consumer. Typically, this refers to TV programming but can also refer to broadcasts of radio, video, and other multimedia.
The Betamax Decision ruled that the making of individual copies of complete television shows for purposes of time-shifting does not constitute copyright infringement, but is fair use.
The Court's ruling in favor of Sony hinged on the principle that the technology in question had significant non-infringing uses. On the question of whether Sony could be described as "contributing" to copyright infringement, the Court stated:
"[There must be] a balance between a copyright holder's legitimate demand for effective -- not merely symbolic -- protection of the statutory monopoly, and the rights of others freely to engage in substantially unrelated areas of commerce. Accordingly, the sale of copying equipment, like the sale of other articles of commerce, does not constitute contributory infringement if the product is widely used for legitimate, unobjectionable purposes. Indeed, it need merely be capable of substantial non-infringing uses....
The question is thus whether the Betamax is capable of commercially significant non-infringing uses ... one potential use of the Betamax plainly satisfies this standard, however it is understood: private, noncommercial time-shifting in the home. It does so both (A) because respondents have no right to prevent other copyright holders from authorizing it for their programs, and (B) because the District Court's factual findings reveal that even the unauthorized home time-shifting of respondents' programs is legitimate fair use....
When one considers the nature of a televised copyrighted audiovisual work ... and that time-shifting merely enables a viewer to see such a work which he had been invited to witness in its entirety free of charge, the fact ... that the entire work is reproduced ... does not have its ordinary effect of militating against a finding of fair use."
