Windows 7: Keep my DVD Collection on Computer

26 Nov 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

I am mistaken. I guess I missed the change in 2010. Updated DMCA legalizes jailbreaking, DVD ripping and more - TechSpot News says that it is legal to break the encryption if it is "for educational purposes, criticism, commentary and noncommercial videos." I believe the "noncommercial videos" part falls under personal use.

Using those copies for yourself is OK, such as on your PC or Mobile device.
So 1 or 2 copies for personal use in this manner is OK.

But creating a mass amount of copies, selling copies, charging to view, or disributing to the masses free of charge is a complete different matter.
You no longer fall into that Non-Commercial/Personal Use and are breaking the law.

So, as long as youi dont have like 50 copies of something, and keep it to 1 or 2, you should be fine.

So what if I have a copy and let one friend have a copy?

I would not be too religious about that. As long as it is not a commercial deal, you should be OK.

Yea, Im not sure that would be a huge deal either.
Not like you are sharing it with the entire world.
