This is what I really do not get about copyrights.

I go to the store and buy a DVD movie.
I do not have a DVD player but a computer.
So I can't watch the movie without libdvdcss

In the states that would be considered illegal even though I did not rip 
or reproduce in any way.

On the note of ripping..... playing a dvd from the DVD deck in my 
computer means the motor of the dvd recorder reader will run constant 
for 2 hours plus.
These motors can't take that kind of stress for very long.
So the best option is to rip it and place it on a Hard drive which is 
more suited for long extended motor usage. By doing that I have broken 
the law and could be prosecuted.

Even though I own the original.

When I buy a game it's a given that the game will be placed on a HD and 
yet the very same copyright laws are broken as soon as I backup the cd 
or dvd game on HD

What a confusing situation.
