to Copy a DVD
by Steve Bishop
If you do a simple search engine search, you will find that
there are many websites dedicated to teaching you how to copy
DVDs and also on selling software to help you copy DVDs. There
is software designed to copy DVD to DVD, VHS to DVD and even
video games such as the Playstation 2 games.
There are so many different types of copy software out there.
There are also chips that are sold that can be installed into
your device to allow you to read the versions of the DVDs that
you copy. This over rides the security features that the manufacturer
had placed on the disc. Some of these software programs can
run for up to $149.00 or more. But many people consider this
acceptable when you look at DVDs being about $19.95 and up each.
You can make as many copies as you want of DVDs with the one
time purchase of the DVD copy software. You can also make copies
of DVDs that you currently own. Since DVDs are sensitive to
heat, they can wear down over time after being played and getting
scratched and they will no longer work. If you make backup copies
of your movies, you dont have to worry about this.
One thing that confuses many people is what is legal and what
is illegal when it comes to copying DVDs. The same as copying
CDs or downloading music from the internet, this can be a very
confusing topic. You may wonder why if copying DVDs is illegal,
why there are so many sites that advertise how to do it. If
you take notice, most of these sites advertise as how to make
a back up copy of your disc. This means you are
simply making a copy for your own use in case one copy was to
become broken. This is legal. You can make as many copies of
your own movie as you want. You are not, however, allowed to
distribute those copies in any way. Many people think that as
long as they are not receiving money for it, then it is okay
to share them. This is false information.
If you buy a legal copy of a DVD movie, copy it yourself, then
give that copy to a friend that is piracy. Even if you get no
profit from it, you are cutting into the profits of the movie
