Re: Clever - fight the copyright infringers using
Hey i fully support being able to copy a DVD/CD game, etc.. I don't like to use my master copies to play with... Once you lose them, mess them up you don't have it anymore... a backup stops that from taking place. Thus i can keep something i have paid for. After all i'm paying $100 for a dvd pack i want it for life. Um, but according to the MPAA/RIAA/etc. doing that IS stealing (SAME DAMN THING). The business model is based around selling programming and making ancillary profit from merchandising, including DVDs. They sell you one DVD/set and its physical contents. They don't sell a lifetime license to the programming on the disc. Just read the warning that plays when you insert the disc.
LOL i see how your logic is... If you buy one coca cola you should get the rest for free for the rest of your life. I got news for ya magot! NOT GONNA HAPPEN..."LOL i see how you logic is... If you buy one Sopranos Season set you should get [it] for free for the rest of your life." I'm sure HBO would express sorrow at your loss due to damage of your season set. But they would still charge you for a replacement rather than allow you to make a precautionary backup.
They even sort of made it against the law to even think about doing that when the DMCA made reverse engineering to circumvent copy protection illegal. (That's part of the reason Lightning's DVD Decrypter is no longer 'around', voluntarily.) Thought control...how American is that? How conducive to free enterprise?
