Copying Music from Youtube

Question:
Nowadays people put their music up on youtube for all to enjoy. These videos only get a view once from my computer and gain nothing more if I go on to that video again and again. May i download the music off Youtube instead of buying it, being as I can always go on the site and listen to it there?

Answer:

As long as they are still selling it aside from youtube, presumably there is still some gain and convenience people have from purchasing the song to have it downloaded. Hence, it would not be permitted to download it without paying.
