Its legal for your own personal use to make backups of any film that you have on dvd. Although that depends on where you live.

Ripping DVDs has become such a task, DVD Shrink doesn't even work on most of the DVDs that I buy anymore. Spider-man 2 won't rip, nor will Star Wars Ep III.

It's funny - it can be completely legal, but they still make it extremely difficult. However US Legislation belongs in a different forum :tazz:.

Patriot act is only for yanks. Most other places its an invasion of privacy and is illegal for a government to monitor without good reason and when they do nothing is useable unless its a related to terrorism or or the traffic of illicit images.
