If you're going to make a snide comment, at least do it right. Mentioning the MPAA would have made sense, you just look dumb by saying RIAA.


Knightlie, there are a lot of people who would like to create backups of their DVDs so that they can avoid the possibility of scratching the originals. Some people would also like to rip DVDs for devices other than their DVD players, such as iPods or even to store on their computer so that they don't have to carry around physical DVDs.

Unfortunately, doing any of these seemingly legitimate things is technically illegal under the DMCA. Making the backup or converting to a file isn't the illegal part, it's the cracking of the encryption that's been made illegal. It's kind of sadistic when you think about it. Tell people that they can do whatever they want with their movies, but then make it illegal to get to them.
