Beware! Personal copies of games and movies are illegal

I buy original DVDs and games as I can afford it and only used a torrent to download Linux ISOs. Now I will gladly accept the fact that I'm not allowed to make personal copies of my original DVDs but please give me a digital copy like they do in the UK for my media player.

Why is it I can buy Tron from the UK and get a DVD copy, BluRay copy and a digital copy for less than the BluRay copy in South Africa? And you want to tell me what to do.
 
I will be relatively eloquent about this :

SAFACT, you can go and fsck yourself.. you are less relevant than RIAA and nobody could give to flying tosses about your opinion.

fsck you beat me to it :(
 
Yawn... the obligatory monthly "piracy is bad we're going to get you" FUD. When the copyright holders get their act together to give us access to legitimately buy content on itunes and netflix and the like, then they will be shocked to discover that there is probably a huge amount of SAns who will happily pay reasonably for digital media. They are shooting themselves in the foot with their rampant local protectionism and smallmindedness.

SAFACT warns that copying a movie or game for personal use can open you up to civil action

The more draconian you're going to get with your copyright laws, the less money I'm going to pay anyone. Wait, that's not true, I can't pay less if I tried - I've already vowed not to support copyright trolls with one cent going forward. I don't watch movies anymore and I use open source software. Really, the more extreme you're going to get, the more extreme we're going to get. Just call it quits already. No one is going to win this battle.

SAFACT, you useless parasites on society, please just off yourselves.

There are many ways to be part of a productive society. Being a copyright troll is not one.

SAFACT obviously haven't seen a 5 year-old handle dvd's.
I make copies of the originals. She uses the copies while the originals are stored away. Simple.
 
RIAA is relevant?

Nope, they aren't relevant at all... which means obviously that nobody actually gives two tosses about SAFACT.... I rip my DVD's, will continue to do so, and if the copyright holder wants to go after me for that, I will stop buying dvd's... so they will lose out, not me.
 
This is totally irrelevant in a country where the president is corrupt.
 
Feel free to sue me for every piece of illegal software or movie I have. Legal costs suing every pirateer >> the possible fine forthcoming from successful litigation.

Don't forget the MPAA is suing thepiratebay or someone for the world's entire GDP or more... :)

I'm sure I read somewhere that if you purchased the original that you are allowed to make backup copies ... ? Or does this apply in other contries?
 
This is a ploy by ISPs to save bandwidth.

/take off tin foil hat.
 
Ah MyBB. The place filled with people that have the attitude of "If they won't let me buy it, I'll just take it. How cool am I!"

Not TPB, the developers of Limewire, an ancient file sharing program that people used to use before torrents. And it's significantly more than the GDP of the world, it's in fact more than the value of everything in the world.
