Hi,

When you buy a DVD from a store, that gives you a single home use licence to watch that on your DVD player. If you want to copy the DVD to your IPOD this is in violation of the copyright laws, so I can't help you on that one. sorry.

What you can do is buy the movie from the itunes music/video store, this will give you a licence to watch it on the IPOD.

Hello,

Are you 100% about this? I thought the catch for putting movies onto the iPod was that sometime in the process of putting the legally purchased DVD movie onto the iPod was that you must have illegally circumvented the copy protection measures during the process. Is the home use license specifically define your set-top DVD player? If so, this would make it illegal for me to watch the original DVD on my home PC.

Cheers,
Tom

Hi alexroa54,

Yes, sorry. It is against copyright laws to copy the dvd in any form, and that is what you would do if you put it on the IPOD.



Hi Tom,

I would presume that if you can put it in a TV set top DVD player or a computer DVD player for home viewing it is fine.

Its as soon as you copy the disc to the computer that is becomes illegal, as the warning says ".... it is illegal to copy, alter, edit...",

Yes, i agree with you on "illegally circumvented the copy protection".
