DVD to itunes

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Is there a free easy way to rip a DVD to your itunes library?
post #2 of 13
There are several methods, but to discuss the details within these forums would be against policy. Might I suggest a Google search with the terms "handbrake" and "DVD"?

No, given that it's perfectly legal and has been since 1976.

Or just tell him to download VLC and HandBrake.

I see... so you can demonstrate that "Fair Use" has been tested and upheld through case law as it applies to circumvention of encryption on DVDs? I'm sure the authors of the DMCA, as well as a bunch of lawyers at the EFF would love to have that information. At best, we can say that the backup of DVDs you have bought is a gray area right now. Both sides are afraid to have it tested in court because both sides are afraid they will lose.

That being said, I support the idea that once I pay for content, I ought to be able to manipulate it for my own personal use, hence my helpful reply.

I seem to recall that in the past, other threads about this topic were deleted by the mods.

Your first post said absolutely nothing of the sort. You NOW intimate this, but originally did not.

You mean MPAA for movies.

The RIAA will sue you for ripping your own CDs into iTunes. Because they think it's illegal.

And since when does the badly-drafted "DMCA" applies to other countries? This is NOT a US-centric forum, you know...such an operation is perfectly legal (i.e., NOT a legal "gray" area) in countries such as Brazil and Switzerland, not to mention many others making use of fair or personal use provisions...

No worries; I just think it's important to point that out, as many AI members do NOT live in the US.
