Sorry you can't do that. It would be against the copyright laws and most likely Mettalica's EULA.
Hes right.
Section 1201 of the DMCA clearly states that "No person shall circumvent a technological measure that effectively controls access to a work protected."
DVD's are encrypted, bypassing that is a No-No

Eventhough the DMCA throws fair use out the window it is still a law ;)

Yes.. BUT. the companies will allow you to make a backup copy of your purchased music. Well, they technically wont sue you for making a backup copy of a purchased cd.. so I guess its technically illegal.. but they wont sue ya :)

Yes but music CD's dont have serious encryption/scrambling methods for copy protection. So you dont violate the DMCA by making a backup copy of them.

But the DMCA says it's a no-no. Trust me, I've done enough looking around to know that DeCSS (which is used to decrypt DVDs) is illegal in the states.


"No person shall circumvent a technological measure that effectively controls access to a work protected."
Something I've always wondered... Worded the way it is, wouldn't law enforcement loose all it's powers to decrypt an encrypted hard drive (even one chaulk full of evidence)?

While I dont condone illegal acts I do believe that once you purchase the software you own it. If you wish to copy it and make a backup it is your responsibility to do so in a manner that does not violate the EULA. That said.. as long as you do not SELL for a profit the item then there should not be a huge problem.

Have you ever read the fine print? You *DIDNT* purchase the software. You purchased a Licence to use the program. Games/software released after the DMCA took effect (late 99 or 2000 I beleive, cant remember) now say in their fine print that You can not make ANY copies of the disk for ANY PURPOSE. Companies however do offer a disk replacement program thing so your software Licence is preserved.

Making a copy of an encrypted/copy protected digital media for any purpose is a Crime under the DMCA.

Look up section previously noted in the DMCA for clarification/proof.

Yeah that is a very interesting point. Would be interesting to see a court case on that one. But dont you guys in the USA have other laws that say, "if we want to get ya we will no matter what" the anti terrorsit BS?

LOL! And Microsoft themselves told me to copy the disk to a drive for slipstreaming! :D When will people ever stop contradictiong themselves :rolleyes: :p


Yeah, the DMCA is totaly American. You guys might have an equivlent, but I haven't heard of anybody else actually going through with it quite yet. There's been talk, but I don't think action...
