If movie studios think they can make more money by stopping you from backing up your DVDs then I'm sure they can convince a few judges that it's illegal.

You can try, but why break it? It's a waste of money.

It's not legal to even watch it. Keep it in the packaging or face legal prosecution.

Why would you need a back up of a DVD? Unless you're using them as coasters at your Superbowl party, it's pretty hard to mess one up.

5 actually, mostly grown now, and they were never allowed to handle DVD's. We would just load up the 5 disk changer, that kept them occupied most of the day.

Movie studios can get judges to license children for viewing DVDs, sort of like a PSL.

All my video is ripped and available on the media players around my house, so no grubby fingers touch my optical media. Now and then I take a clorox wipe to the remote, that's about it. Never considered creating backup copies since they pretty much go into the computer and back into the case.
