I have often wondered about the legality of this. Mostly because I have a very large vinyl collection. The RIAA and MPAA are always saying that you have bought only a license, so if I own lets say [i]Meddle by Pink Floyd[/i], I download a copy off some ftp, get caught and it goes to trial. Can I make a defense that "I have a license here, check out the cover art"? Also my PVR from my crappy Cable company, Shaw, often forgets its a PVR and doesn't record what its set to do. Meaning I end up downloading them. Do I have a defense there?
Aslso I hate Blue-Ray disks with Digital Copies. They always end up costing $10 more than regular Blue-Ray disks and to give me something I don't want or have any use for.
