    Here in Brazil it is similar.
    You can remove all protection from a DVD, but YOU CAN'T SELL the resulting data.

    This is somewhat like our laws about .MP3 audio: you can download it, as long as
    it's for personal use or transmission over the Internet _AS LONG AS_ you don't
    "sell" music. If you burn a CD with downloaded music to play on your CD player
    it's legal. But if you sell the CD it is illegal.

    Sorry, but you don't need a backup. They do not degrade.

    It is THEIR property. The one you bought is your copy. If it goes
    defective, that's your fault. Properly used, they NEVER degrade.
    They will lose, and you are a loser. You want copies for your
    little rug monkeys, make a VHS tape or a VCD. Get fucked for trying
    to make a bit for bit copy.
    Yes, you are.

    I have a Daewoo dvd player that is region free. I've played dvd's from
    2 other zones and they played just fine.
    I notice you stated illicit not illegal. There is a legal distinction.
    I bought mine over the net from a dealer in NY but have since seenthe
    same player selling in local stores.
    As for the governement outlawing what I do with whatever I buy for my
    own personal use. They forget that They serve the people not the other
    way around.
    We have this thing called the constitution and no laws may be made
    that will abridge or change it. Especially in regards to the laws
    protecting unalienable rights. Those include freedom of expression,
    speech and privacy.
    What I do with my own property(that includes any recorded media I
    purchase.) in the privacy of my own home for my own use.
    By the owner of the intellectual/artisitic property(this being THE
    material on the commercial dvd.) putting said property in the retail
    sales market they come under he comes under guide lines and rules as
    set forth by fair trade laws. i.e. they relenquish private view rights
    to whomever purchases the material for their own personal viewing.
    They have no rights to mandate how you view it.
    The clearest example of this would be the LP's of past that all would
    purchase and make cassette copies of for their own use.
    ASCAP and the RIAA could'nt get the Supreme court to ban home
    recording and the film and video industry won't have any better luck
    getting the cititzenry to comply now.
    No matter how many politicians they bribe or unlawfull regulations
    they try to impose.
    If I choose to make a copy of any DVD I purchase to vhs or whatever
    for my own personal viewing it's no one's business but mine.
    If I choose to purchase a descrambler to remove any signal that
    degrades image quality that's my business as well. I'm buying the
    images not the anti-theft crap they trash it with.
    The government can't under constututional law mandate what we will or
    won't purchase or own inregards to restrictive players.

    Well said. Arguing about word play is a waste.
    Better to discuss whether we should allow any government to have the
    power to strip away our basic rights.

    Thank you Rick. At last someone here with enough stones to speak up.

    How can you steal something you legally purchased?
    Sounds to me like you're the jack-off.
    BTW how old are you? Can you even remember when citizens had to fight
    to preserve the freedoms you seem so willing to throw away to whatever
    crooked corporation or corrupt politician?
    Or maybe you're one of the Jack-offs that stand to profit from illegal
    regulation of the market?

    If you seriously believe that, you're delusional.
    And you're a freaking sociopath as well.

    The DMCA has failed more legal challenges than it's passed
    over the last five years, and that is just one reason. Read
    many others here:

    Tell us, oh dipshit, how did they do it before the advent of video?

    That's right. It was costly as ****. Just because a new form
    factor is available doesn't mean that it is free to all.

    Sure, they are allowed to use excerpts from films legally, but they
    still have to buy a copy to legally extract the excerpts. So it isn't
    about their right to it, it is about their methods, and practices.
    They never had a blanket copy go ahead from anybody, yet seem to think
    they do have such a right.

    You should relax. $20 for a disc is not a big outlay for a modern
    school. Doh! Any idiot teacher that wants to use video in his course
    should have enough brains to know how to do so.

    Sorry chump, but those freedoms come at a price. One cannot claim
    such freedoms, and then step on others rights to profit from your
    desires to have their product.

    Your argument is as fucked as your mentality.

    Not true at all. If an effort has been made to make it uncopyable, then
    it it copy protected. The effectiveness of the copy protection method
    doesn't matter.

    A fence is still a fence, even if you cut it down with wire cutters.

    You are incorrect. If you utilize hardware that defeats their
    protection schemas, you are violating their rights, and federal laws.

    Well, that's really up for debate though. You do not own the content of
    the disc, you only have a license to use it.

    Retard. I didn't say anything about a legally purchased disc. My
    reference was to stealing. You do know what that word means, right?

    That would be any DLd stream off the net, or any ripped image of any
    disc that the copy twit doesn't OWN. Get a clue, jackass.
    No. That would be twits like you, and Rick the retarded dick.
    Older than you, most likely.
    Your rambling is meaningless. Nobody is taking anything from me,
    You're an idiot. $20 for a DVD is a bargain. Most are even less
    than that. Get a CLUE.

    Wrong Wrong Wrong you Buttmunch.

    The decision ONLY pertains to the Cracking of the Encryption Code.
    if what you say is true then i couldnt make a copy of my own DVD's
    That i create myself.
    321 studios will keep on publishing its software, only the software
    cant Decrypt anymore.....but of course there are ways around that too.

    I never said otherwise. I presume ownership of the source. You can't read.
