US Code, Title 17 Sec. 1201. Circumvention of copyright protection system
i mean i own it when i buy it right?
You own the physical DVD but you do not "own" the material on it.
When you purchase a DC/DVD, you are purchasing a license to listen/watch it.
The copyright owner (music label or movie studio) retains the rights to copy it.
In order to copy a commercial DVD, you need to break the encryption used on it.
According the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act), breaking the encryption is illegal (even if you own the DVD).
alrighty. thanks for the help guys. one more question, if i buy a movie on the itunes store can i then save it in more than one place? example: i buy it and it shows up in my itunes library. now can i also save it to an external hard drive as well as my computer. also, am i able to back it up to a dvd?
