    Im assuming its such an easy question no one wants to tackle it?

    Im just not sure why i keep seeing Threads about DRM in the shrink
    forum? And reading them doesnt help either? they about downloading
    media?

    Whats does downloading media have to do with me backing up my movies?

    Not that it's such an easy question to answer as much as you were able to search for part of the answer but weren't willing to go the rest of the way with it.

    Basically copy protection from every aspect....downloads, uploads, rips etc. DRM is everywhere.

    yeah i kinda understood that it was copy protection put on different media types but does it affect me backing up my movies?

    Thats all i really want to know..

    and everywhere i seached gives the reply you wrote
    And all that explains is what it stands for and how it pertains to video files being downloaded?

    But why is there threads about in the shrink forum?

    its no big deal i just figured there would be a thread i missed somewhere explaining how it affects people using dvd shrink?



    This is all i found on there because im using vista it may affect me but i havnt run into it yet?

    We've been dealing with DRM all along. It just seems Microsoft went a few steps farther than they did with XP. Microsoft in the end has made Vista more user friendly than earlier planned. Early release info had the OS being highly restrictive where copying copyrighted materials is concerned and there was supposed to be embedded code. That doesn't seem to have been incorporated in the final release. We have to watch though because Vista is still a work in progress.
