Ok, below is the image im sure plenty of you have seen on almost any fairly new released DVD. Does this scare any of ya at all? Kinda scares me a bit. What’s the likelihood that people will get sued for NON-monetary gain as the FBI calls it? Obviously burning and SELLING them they would go after…but with the new worded warning about NON-monetrary purposes…
I’m not sure if we should worry about this or not (for those of us renting and burning, burning off friends dvd’s, etc).
P.S. Making backups of YOUR OWN purchased movies IS illegal, IF you use a copy-right protection removal program such as dvdshrink, anydvd, dvd decrypter, etc). However, thats pointless since ripping to your HDD and watching off the HDD, as far as I can recall does NOT need the copy protection removal programs to watch…only if you are physically burning it to a DVD.
Now this topic you might say is in the wrong forum, however, being that AnyDVD is basically an illegal program according to US laws BUT, since the company is not US based, technically I dont think they can get in trouble by the FBI (and some users of this forums are NOT from the US.) Since this forum is ANYDVD titled…I think it applies!
Basically, do you feel worried about this new FBI warning esp the “non-monetary gain” warning that is punishable up to 5 years in prison and very hefty fine?
Please answer the poll question as well.
