[quote=SLOVEHEART;2062915]another thing i heard on the evening news a few weeks ago was that there was a japanesse company that has come out with a supposed uncopyable disc, my wife told me that she heard this on the news, and i have not heard anything more about it, everything is surrountable i believe.
hope everything remains the same![/quote]
I think there is no point being so paranoid. If one day DVD copy is no more available, I am sure smart folks will come out with something else.
Few months back when SONY won the Blu_Ray wars, it was mentioned that BLU-RAY cannot be ripped, however, some company has came out with the ability to ripped them…it is matter of time.
Looking back, I remembered when DVD players had regional codes, now you can hardly see any manufacturer obeying regional codes. FYI, my SONY Hi-Fi Theatre System can play movies from ALL regions…and I did not make any modifications to the player.
The movie industries are SMART but not STUPID. They will find ways to RESTRICT copying but generally, they will not BARRED movie copying. And even if they restrict, manufacturer will “follow” consumers demands…Look at what happen to BETAMAX. (they restrict copying) and they Fail.
Who knows, maybe some one will come up with the ability to use SD or flash memory on TV or player to view HI-FI movies … so we do not need to RIP movies, we can just COPY and PASTE from one source to the other and live happily ever after.
