    Court Rules Copying DVD now Illegal.

    Say this at AVSForum.

    Recently the U.S. Copyright Office in response to a request to provide a copy exemption for consumers wanting to watch legally-owned DVDs on non-disc devices, has ruled it's illegal to bypass copy-protection in order to make digital copies for playback on hard drives, tablets, phones, and non-disc devices.

    What do you think about that?

    I have been ripping all my DVD's and Blurays and storing them on a NAS so I can enjoy them anytime.

    I think they need to leave their paying customers alone and stop treating them like criminals. How is this going to stop the real problem of piracy. Instead of going after people who are illegally getting movie torrents they are going after people who actually paid for the movie.

    Regardless, I don't see much, if any change from this. People are going to continue ripping their movies and no one will be actively trying to stop them.

    I'm beginning to think it isn't about crime but about squeezing customers for more.

    No but I can see them putting a stop to software sales of software which breaks the encryption on DVD's and BluRays.
