  1. Of course this expensive solution wouldn’t be necessary if DVDs allowed ripping like CDs do. The reason why portable video devices are still immature is because you cannot legally transfer the content from DVDs to their hard drives. Apple wouldn’t have been as popular as it has if you couldn’t rip your CD collection to the iPod and could only transfer music bought from iTunes.

  2. Even more interesting is that HD-DVDs and Blu-ray discs can be legally ripped (“managed copy”), yet the DVD Forum can’t/won’t amemd the CSS rules to allow managed copy of regular DVDs.
