    So now talking about copying rental dvd's is acceptable?

    Maybe its time to update the forum rules then.

    Hi
    Basically it has been decided that reference to rentals is acceptable.
    But that doesn't mean opening the floodgates.
    On some occasions where someone purchases a faulty disc.
    The replacement being sometime off. (Mail order. shop out of stock, faulty batch etc.)
    It could be deemed appropriate to use a rental to complete the backup.
    As an interim measure.
    Plus some countries laws are somewhat lenient in this respect.
    You may not know, but some rentals have differing protections to that of the retail version.
    In order for James to respond appropriately. This info can be helpful.
    But please note. This is not an open, free for all on the topic of rentals.
    Many members may withhold their help in these cases.
    Which is both, perfectly understandable & acceptable.
    However we ask members not to flame users who mention rentals.
    In particular folk new to the forum.
    Hope this goes some way in clearing up the situation.
    Thanks to you all for your input & understanding.

    Well, it's an either/or proposition. Black or white. I have never heard of a country which approves stealing of copyrited materials. The statement that rentals have different protections is not relavant. It is still a rental. The "floodgates" are now offically open.

    Hi
    Time will tell.
    But it is now open to abuse. That's for sure.
    I do believe though that in some places. While perhaps not strictly legal (otherwise why have protections).
    It is not illegal either. Again, strictly speaking.
    For some there is still the moral aspect regardless.

    As you undoubtedly know, belief and knowledge are not necessaarily the same thing.....

    What the heck does "not strictly legal" mean? Does it mean it's legal if you do it and illegal if I do it????

    This "slippery slope "has just gotten much steeper, IMO.
