Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA.

Isn't DMCA takedown meant for if the content itself is a violation of copyrights? Therefore, it would be appropriate to issue a DMCA takedown if youtube-dl itself was stolen from RIAA, but not for this. Am I right?
