Why are there so many software programs for ripping dvds on the market when virtually every dvd is marked by a copyright that wont let you copy it?

I believe that the question should be, if it's illegal to copy CSS protected DVDs, why are there so many available that work?! :thumbsup:

Thats simple we have the right to buy a cd and put on a cassette. we did this for years before CD-R's came out. and when the CD-R came out you could transfer the tape to CD-R. The same goes w/ videos you could copy a BETAMAX to a VHS and vice-versa then when DVD-R came out people moved all VHS stuff to DVD. They want you to think that ripping a DVD/CD is illeagal because out all the Napster and RIAA stuff going on. Just remember you purchased one copy of that movie and you can watch it anyway your heart desires and you can make a backup copy of it if you want to. As long a you physically still have the original (or some proof of purchase) and you dont share it over the web they cannot touch you for piracy.
