    Handbrake is a good converter, it handles almost all formats.

    If its a digital copy, put DVD in drive, follow instructions on Box.

    Actually, it is legal.


    As long as you don't distribute it, etc.

    Just use a program like handbrake to rip and format it for your iPod.

    Actually, NO it isn't legal. No amount of hoping so makes its legal. See the DMCA for reference. Circumvention of the copy protection is ILLEGAL and CRIMINALIZED. Doesn't matter if you own it or not, what you intend to do with it, blah blah blah.

    You can thank our corrupt legislators with Hollywood's money in their pocket for this one.

    So yes, the general process that is legal for CD's, is in fact ILLEGAL for DVD's. Pretty ridiculous isn't it?

    Yes, I understand the concept of fair use - but that isn't written into the DMCA and there is not precedent for which way a judge would rule in the case of an end-user making backup copies or importing personal use DVD's. Because of course the MPAA never wants it tested - they just want to use fear to try to intimidate you into buying the same product 3 or 4 different ways.

    Want an example of how ridiculous it all is - their lawyers recently argued that although there is some sort of educational archival exemption built in, if a schoolteacher/professor wanted to copy out DVD clips for classroom use, that the teacher should actually play the DVD on a tv and RECORD IT OFF SCREEN USING A CAMCORDER. What a bunch of tools.
