Yes!

 

To the original poster, you might try "How" rather than "can I". Post your computer specs and EMC Version you are using (some people do get in the wrong board.) What do you mean by copy protected cd? Do you mean a DVD or something like the Sony root kit cd? You are not being charged by the word and this is not a chat board where you can go back and forth so take your time and post all the specifics; and if you do a long post, try doing a spell check (this one was OK).

 

Remember that Roxio only pays the money to keep the boards active. No one is a Roxio employee unless they are identified as being an employee. We are users who try to help- especially those who try to help themselves.

I sent the op a private message explaining the position of this forum.

No, No i dont want a dvd. Here it is guys. Nothing illegal atleast i don't think.

 

I bought this CD and I want to rip it onto my computer to use on my Ipod, etc for back up purposes but it is copy protected. Thats the issue.

You have the right to make a backup copy, IMO, and it may rip using Music Disc Creator. Have you tried? If you have 2 drives, it might even copy from one to the other, I don't know. Try it and see.

Sure, simply put, we don't explain how to circumvent anti piracy protection. It's easy to do but this is not the place to share that knowledge.

According to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Attempts to circumvent encryption are explicitly barred by the DMCA.

 

"The way that statute has been interpreted, it's illegal to bypass those types of digital access controls.

 

So then there is no difference in CD and DVD and copy protection in the U.S. correct?

My personal opinion (which makes no difference) is that I make copies of any cd/dvd I own that I want to keep forever. What I can't do is tell people how to get around it on this forum. My statement about trying it and see was not telling him to be sneaky since sometimes copyrighted cd's can be copied without a problem.....sometimes. I admit I used the wrong words 'right to make a backup copy'. I can't find where it says you legally have a right however I also don't see where is says you can't.

I'm not a copyright attorney but copyright is copyright. Are there differences in the US between copying music and copying movies? I'm sure there are but the main law is the DMCA-Digital Millennium Copyright Act from 1998 and it one of the many things it states is "Makes it a crime to circumvent anti-piracy measures built into most commercial software." We can pick it apart as much as we want but I know of no one arrested yet for making a backup copy of their legally purchased software, movie or audio cd. I guess those of us in the states could take our dvd's and cd's on a vacation to Canada, make copies and come back home with them. Or, maybe there's something in the law that stops that from being legal too, who knows.

 

I think this thread has gone about as far as it can unless it becomes a tireless list of everyone's opinion.
