DVD Copying Software Ruled Illegal
Now the last time I was at Best Buy, the shelves were packed with copies of this and I saw at least 5 people take a copy to buy.

Just like the other arenas, the genie is already out of the bottle. Then again, it’s one thing to market DVD creation/file backup software, it’s quite another say “make copies of your dvds so you can ‘preserve’ the originals!” and expect that to go over without raising any eyebrows.
