ALL DVD copying to be illegal.

Not just the rent a movie, rip it to your computer, and make copies for all your friends kind.

A proposed amendment to the current copy protection license governing DVDs would completely ban all DVD backups, and prevent DVD playback without the DVD disk being present inside the drive.

They (Chris Cookson of Warner Bros., Ben Carr of Walt Disney Studios, Jeffrey Lawrence of Intel, Gabe Beged-Dov of Hewlett-Packard, David Harshman of Toshiba, and Andy Parsons of Pioneer Electronics) apparently don’t want you to be able to rip a DVD so you can play it on your PC or HD TV using Media Center.

Here’s a link to the PC Magazine article.
