New DMCA Exemptions: Ripping DVDs for Online Video Now Legal

Jul 26 2010

Pretty good news here from the book of common bloody sense! :-) Finally you can "legally" backup DVDs you own...as if anyone was truly waiting for this ruling to do so.

 

Merely bypassing a technological protection that restricts a user from viewing or using a work is insufficient to trigger the DMCA’s anti-circumvention provision. The DMCA prohibits only forms of access that would violate or impinge on the protections that the Copyright Act otherwise affords copyright owners.
