    Out of curiousity, I know that when you purchase a movie on DVD, game on UMD, Xbox DVD, etc... You are physically owning the disc upon which the game is copied, and by the act of purchasing the title, you are also being granted RIGHTS to watch the movie and make a single backup. My question is: Is it legal for you to download a ripped copy of a movie if you already lease the rights to the title. I.E. can I torrent a copy of Spiderman 2 if I already own the DVD? The practical reason for this is if I do not own a encoder Divx, H.264, etc... and I own the movie, can I get it that way? Perhaps something to tickle some people's noodles.

    legaly it can only be considered a legal backup copy if you yourself make it.

    How would you like it if you made something really cool and made a whole bunch of money from it, and some dickface comes along and copies you? That's what the laws are in place for.

    How do you think Taiwan gets away with making all of those bootleg products? Their copyright laws aren't as strict as most other countries (and due to their weak government, they have weak law enforcement).
