I also get miffed at all the adverts, trailers and warning notices etc on DVDs especially the ones that you can't skip. So for stuff that I like to watch over and over again I copy them without including all the garbage. In the UK it's still legal under copyright law to make one backup copy of a DVD, providing you keep the original.

It also helps in the event of accidental damage, so you still have the original to re-copy if necessary, plus of course that some companies are tending to use cheaper quality DVDs with a limited 'play' life.

Of course, it is still illegal to switch your PC sound output from the speakers to a separate recording device such as a minidisc recorder, so I wouldn't recommend anybody doing that.

Have you seen apps like RipIt for the Mac that copy the disc to a harddrive using the likes of handbrake, are they for the US etc only?

Just remembered this thread! Anywho there's a great film on Film4 at 11.35pm, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, a pretty cool skateboarding vampire, worth a watch I think. :v2_dizzy_clapping:

recorded it but not watched yet. Interesting that it is an Iranian film ...but personally love most horror films.
