+ - Digital Copy

Submitted by Slash.Poop
Slash.Poop (1088395) writes "For years now, the most legitimate and legal argument for the ability to rip and burn media has been for the purposes of making a backup copy. Now with the introduction of digital copies into DVDs and Blu-rays has the media industry trumped this argument? Apple's iTunes store made its announcement sometime back and other outlets have reported this including, Computer World:

Digital Copy is nonsense. It's your movie, you bought it, and you should be able to watch it how you want to watch, when you want to watch it. There are many programs out there that allow you to make copies of your DVDs and let you watch them the way you want to view them. The combination of HandBrake, an open-source video to MPEG4 converter with versions for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows and a DVD DRM decryption library like libdvdcss for Linux PCs, Macs, and older versions of Windows works well. Or, on XP — but not Vista — you can use the old, but still best of breed, DVD Decrypter 3.5.4.0.
