    Copying DVDs

    I have a friend who is an anime freak. I have watched a few of them (FLCL, a bunch

    of ruroni kenshins, etc) and I have found a movie that I have realy enjoyed. It is the

    Samuri X trust & vetrayal. Anyway, I am saving up money for a new vidio card, so I

    dont want to buy this movie. I was wondering if it is legal to copy the dvd to my hard

    drive.

    Thanks

    You could use the old "personal backup copy" loophole, I guess. Backup the guy's DVD to your hard drive. Then you would be considered the holder of his backup copy in case something terrible happened like his house burned down. Since it's still his property, though, I don't think you could legally watch the movie, though... but it could sit there on your hard drive, legally, and look all pretty. Keep in mind I'm not a lawyer, though, and any advice I've given here is simply from one friend to another; if you are serious about this question and really worried about it, I suggest you contact legal counsel for further help. I am not responsible for any consequences that may arise from following the advice I've given here.
    Logic shall prevail.
