I know copy right laws vary from nation to nation but here in the US it's not legal to make an archive of your DVD/Blu Ray collection. But it is legal to copy your CDs as long as you don't share them online. http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/250669-copyright-laws-and-how-they-apply-to-geeks-to-go-policy/ I wish it was legal to archive of your DVD/Blu Ray collection as well, because imagine having a Raspberry Pi or some other small affordable computer and being able to play all of your DVDs & Blu Rays on one device no need to put them in your DVD/Blu Ray player it would all be in one place. And yes I know there streaming services out there but they don't have everything available like certain niche movies for example.

 

Anyway please share your thoughts.

I wished that was the case in the UK... You can't even legally rip CDs here...

Yeah I know in fact it was legal to copy all of your media in the UK for a short while there but then the stupid lobbyist had to ruin it.  :nono:  Shoot I'm mean if you buy it then you should have the right copy it, its not like your going to upload it to a file sharing site. :rolleyes:

Well even so its very hard to enforce, but that doesnt stop draconian laws from happening like the recent article 13 in the EU

Yep, Lobbyists ruin everything :/

Hopefully we don't plunder into more madness with Article 11 and Article 13 of the new EU copyright law...

Speaking of Article 11 and Article 13 here's a video from the EFF about that.  There's still time to stop #Article11 and #Article13. Here's how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjqCT9Exq58

I do not think copyright laws every envisioned the tech age. If computer programs were only protected with patents they would be available to all to improve and/ or offer generically.

@SuperSapien64, If you're in the EU (Including the UK), you can contact your MEP to be against article 11 and 13
