Windows 7: how can i copy read only file from DVD-ROM to windows 7

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

If one wants two copies of a copyright protected movie just by two of them. Problem solved. You can't buy one car and have you and your friend drive away with one car each. You want two cars you buy two cars. You could also get a portable DVD player and use it.

Just for the record, I meant this:

Did you right-click and choose "Copy"? Or did you right-click and choose "Cut"?

Anyway, don't answer that because now I know what the problem is and I will not support it. I'm sorry.
