This is one of those annoying cases where what's legal doesn't line up
with what's moral. This often happens when the law gets distorted by
business interests. While it may be technically illegal, I see no
*moral* issue with ripping a movie you own. You've paid for it; you're
just choosing to view it in a different way. Ripping a movie you
*don't* own, on the other hand, seems to me to be a form of theft, and
hence immoral. Just my opinion.
