Re: what is legal and what's illegal in the USA?
here's my take on it
If I can play a movie that I paid for in my DVD player without a problem, then I should be able to play it in my DVD player on my computer. If I want to make a back up copy of a DVD I should be able to. If they really did not want me to they would stop making the product or not allow the product (the DVD-ROM) to be licenced to be built into a computer.
One of the biggest idiot companies out there is Sony, they actually own a record label and also own the copyright on CD's, and they also sell computer that come standard with burners which they make as well. sony also makes their own burining software. but to cover their butts they also develope some of the cruelest DRM technology out there that acts like a virus.

Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.
