    I did a five year stretch in Sing Sing for copying a rental. I'll never walk the same.

    That should teach you it's a bad thing copying rentals. NO I was just wondering what the fine was and how they can track you down

    They cant actually, dvds you rent are DVD-ROM... Read Only Memeory so theres no way for them to tell wether or not the dvd has been copied.

    Nope, it doesnt matter. When you decypt a dvd, all the computer does is read it (hence DVD [bold]R[/bold]ead [bold]O[/bold]nly [bold]M[/bold]emory) It is impossible for anyone to track if it was decrypted.

    BTW, if you are caught copying dvd's here, you are drawn and quartered, and your head put on a stake and put on the MPAA's Building in LA as a warning to others!

    They only way they could catch you is if they raided your house, and they can only do that with a warrant due to the fourth amendmant which prohibits illegal search and seizure.

    If you use 321 products,they put a 16 digit No.in an archive text file on your burn and it coudld be linked to your software registration? but its easy to get rid off.

    its true - they do

    but, just use 321Gone - and it removes both that and the warning at the beginning

    Your dead right,but RF + 321rip still leaves the Txt file intact,what I do is make a shortcut to Temp folder on the Desktop,after ripping open the Temp folder,delete the archive txt file then burn.Very easy.
    Cheers ispy

    I'll check into that as soon as I get released from prison. I'm up for parole in 2050 for copying a movie back in 1979.

    Somone told me should you copy a dvd from the video shop you do not get your free pop corn on your next visit.The fbi have had to stop hiding in the case of each dvd you rent due to the fear of being compressed on your computer.Should you decide to back up a dvd from the video shop no pop corn for you as you will be a naughty boy.
