Sorry guys but this is all a bit of a con, at least so far as dvd copying is concerned. It’s really just a typical case of politicians’ tricks with smoke and mirrors. It is already legal downunder to record any free to air broadcast for later viewing (time shifted recording) so there’s no change there. Even if “fair use” back-ups of movie dvds are permitted, our beloved government isn’t contemplating altering the law that makes using a de-css utility (e.g. Dvd Decrypter/ AnyDVD) illegal so the “fair use” permission will have little or no use. The only area where the proposed change in the law will have any real impact is in permitting personal back-up copies of audio cds. However, even this has little meaning as no-one has ever been prosecuted for copying an audio cd that they own and it’s extremely doubtful that anyone ever would be charged with such an offence even if the law is not changed. If such a charge were to be brought, almost inevitably it would be either dismissed as trivial or a nominal fine of say $2.00 max would be imposed.
