Should you be able to make digital copies of DVD's you purchased for use on your other devices?
You should be able to make a backup copy.
It's your property. Once the exchange of money and DVD get made its yours. You should've be limited on "your" use of it, but copying and selling is no longer "your" use because selling it implies you have full rights to the film itself. So therefore,
For your own use? Cool. To sell? Not so cool.
Funny: everyone supports this, but opposes piracy. Its good to see people support piracy when put in laymens terms.
Not quite "piracy" if its for my own use, not logically anyway
Youre still copying it. If Hollywood ruled the world, theyd have you flayed.
When I purchase a DVD, I purchased one copy and am licensed to use the one copy for my own use. Many remember vinyl records. You could play it, store and lend it out, put you could really never copy it. You make recording of it, but they were
never as good as the original (at the time; for most people). Because we have the technology to make digital copies of recording does not mean we should. When we buy records, we buy the rights to THAT copy-no more.
Does it harm anyone? If I have no intention of buying a digital copy, which I shouldn't have to, then does the publisher lose anything?
If nothing is stolen then there is no victim. I'm simply using my property in a different manner.
I don't know how people eat up this kind of garbage
Oh but there is a victim reb. The rich multi millionaire recording artists.
Technically, you can copy vinyl...it's a toughy though. Lol.
Or you can copy it to cassette. :P
Of course. I *purchased* the movie. I didn't rent it.
Why are people saying no? If its for my own enjoyment and I'm not sharing it what the big deal?
Why can't you just use the copy that you have? Why do you need a digital copy?
Well I shouldn't have to prove a need but one thing I've had to experience several times in my life is flying across the Atlantic. I don't own a laptop so being able to watch my movies on my iPad is a sanity saver.
@Shelly, Most phones don't have a DVD drive built in.
