I find it funny that a forum that does not condone "piracy" would post this. Although making yourself personal copies, whenever the subject comes up people always catch hell for bootlegging, even when it is for their own use.

For those who are new to ripping blu-rays, Cinavia is a new copy protection on Sony blu-rays (and possibly other studios) that mutes the audio for any ripped media files. It's pretty annoying, but there are ways around it. Do some research before selecting a device for playing media files.

You are absolutely 100% right. We do not condone "piracy" or allow anyone to discuss such illegal actions. Thankfully, ripping movies onto a hard drive for personal use at home is not illegal according to the U.S. Supreme Court and falls under the FAIR USE Act of 2007. In other words, it is acceptable to make copies of copyrighted material without the permission of its author, but with very limited restrictions.

Don't pirate!

Cinavia prevents people from making fully functional digital copies for personal use that falls under fair use and from what I've read, there is no way to remove the DRM without messing up the audio. The government needs to pass another amendment to make this type of DRM illegal.

I highly doubt it will happen, but it'd be interesting to see how the courts handle it if people sue over it.

People don't have the money to sue these big labels. This is where Attorney Generals need to get together and do it. Like I said, I don't think it's gonna happen

My understanding is that while what you're saying is true, any circumvention of copy protection measures IS illegal in the US, making it impossible to do what you're suggesting without breaking the law first.
