The DMCA is a confusing, nonsensical and contradictory law. If someone purchases a movie, they should be able to do whatever they want with it, as long as they are not making copies to sell. People don't need a library of DVDs sitting on their bookshelf if they can just store it all in a small hard drive. Getting into the realm of Netflix is borderline-- because you don't actually own the movie. You are paying to own it for a limited ammount of time, and once that time expires, your movie should expire. So here's a question: If I borrow a purchased DVD movie from a neighbor, but I don't know when I will have a chance to watch it, is it ethical to make a copy of it so that I can return the dvd right away, but watch it when I have a chance? (Keeping in mind that there is a difference here between "ethical" and "legal")
