Perhaps the idiots who designed the DMCA will figure out that WE WANT TO WATCH OUR DVDs ON SOMETHING OTHER THAN A TV!!!
''Not content with just ripping you off with their high hardware prices, Circuit City is now robbing you via a DVD transfer service. For $10, you can get one of your precious DVD movies?that you ''own''?ripped into iPod format. For $20, they'll do three, and for $30 they'll do five.
This service is all fine for grandma?who can't compute her way out of a wet paper sack?but according to the DMCA, any attempts to circumvent the encoding scheme on DVDs is a big federal, pound-me-in-the-*** no-no. That means The City is breaking DMCA several times a day, transferring customer's videos onto their iPods and other portable media devices. ? Jason Chen''
So I wonder, what's worst for DMCA. Doing this at Circuit City or doing this at home?
