post #11 of 18
It is perfectly legal to back up your own dvds enough said, im like the master on this stuff hahaha, as long as you do not distribute the dvd its not illegal, BUT lets look at this in another way, say you have a business, you sell movies, well, you can distribute that way then .

I don't beleive that it is legal. Fair use has been established in other forms of copyrighted materials like cds. However the DMCA is now saying that fair use aside it is illegal to circumvent the encryption on DVD movies. No matter what I (or anyone else) may feel is right the law is there. Fair use standards have been around for a long time, but the DMCA has been written into law and would superceede any implied fair use claims. Not all DVD movies are encrypted, those are perfectly legal to back up as it doesn't violate the DMCA laws. However if the disc is encrypted (ie you would need some tool to extract the VOB files) than you cannot legally back it up. I have yet to see anyone point me to a credible document that says otherwise. I have however, read the DMCA papers and the subsequent response documents. They very clearly say that fair use doesn't allow for the consumer to back up a dvd. They even go further to say that they have become cheap enough to warrant replacing the disc if damaged. I will edit in the link in a bit.
