CD ripping to be permitted following UK copyright reform

Quote:
Copying music, film and other digital media for personal use is to be made legal under changes to how the UK government enforces copyright.

The changes will be introduced in 2013 and will enable third parties to reproduce copyrighted work without permission from rights holders when copying works for individual use, parody or quotation. They will allow people to legally rip MP3s from their CDs and copy digital versions of films they own, a practice that is currently illegal, although no one is prosecuted for it.

See I find this kinda Redundent in a way They sell software for this in Major stores I might add but they use the Term for Personal backups

I think honestly if this was a problem to begin with why allow software to be made for it kinda contradicting but what can you do

I remember i asked a question about this type of software in the store and almost got the boot for it and it is legal go figure

As it should be. Theres nothing wrong with making personal copies. If you purchased it and have a hard copy in your posession, whats wrong with making Digital copies for a media server?

Pirating is a NO-No though and I completely agree with that part.

That's my point I make personals for my Family people don't realize how expensive it is to have a child that tears stuff up my kid is in the Terrible 3's thank God she will be 4 in July this upcoming year and maybe she'll calm down

That is my main Purpose for this kinda stuff she can play the hell out of the copy and the Hardcopys are nice and sweet put out of harms way

This actualy lightens the pocket book and you can always Borrow a hard copy from a friend and make one for yourself

Exactly!
Thats why I make AVCHD discs for the kids. Nearly BluRay quality but if they scratch or break it, I still have the original and Im only out 50cents or so for a replacement blank DVD. Beats buying a new Bluray or DVD disc.

They'll calm down but even in the teen years they tend to toss DVDs and CDs around scrtaching them up. At least around here they do LOL.
I guess they have more important things to worry about than if a disc is put away or not.

I'm at a loss to understand this new law. Help me if you will please.
Does this new law help or hinder people from buying a movie DVD and then using a utorrant and send it to a few thousand friends and family around the world for personal use of course? How and who gets to make the decision on what is or is not personal use. It stated in the article that this law would improve the U.K. economy. I don't understand that either. It surly won't boost the economy of the copyright holder. It will probable improve the black market when you can buy a $20.00 movie for $5.00. For personal use of friends and family only of course.
If one allows a small child to handle or play with a costly DVD then that someone should be responsible for that action not the copyright holder. As you can read I'm confused on how this law is a good law.
PS: I have never had a copyright but I do honor all copyrights others have.

To my understanding..

Making a copy for "Personal Use" means that
1) The copy is for your own use/family use at home 2) You have the original material in your possesion

Torrenting or mass sharing with others would fall under Piracy.

Thats how I have always treated the personal use issue.

How and who does the checking on whether it is personal use. Does someone come to your house and check if you have a original paid for DVD. Once the copyright laws are opened up who monitors the use copyrighted material. Is there some method to check how many copies are sent to friend and family for personal use of course using P2P. I don't see a way to monitor or enforce this new law. Anybody can copy anything and send it any place with no monitoring by anybody or organization.
Understanding a law and not having a way of enforcing the law is not worth much.

If you think about it, if its on a P2P network, torrent whatever, anyone in the world has access.

I would guess that once it leaves the household where the physical copy resides as a digital copy via P2P, its considered pirated material regardless who is receiving it.


So, if being shared via the web, Pirated material and subject to the copyright laws. And any internet sharing/downloading can be tracked and recorded and easy to spot.
If it remains in the household, its personal use and no attention drawn to it. Since it would be legal to this, no will come looking nor need to.

Or at least, thats how I would think they would do it.

In all honesty, I don't really think they care if you loan your sister something or other family member/friend.
But distributiong to the masses freely or for profit is what they want to stop.
