So in those terms as long as they only use one copy at a time you'll be fine, but if nother are used together it could be claimed that you've effectively stopped the staff purchasing another copy, hence, against the commercial interests of the copyright holder. If everyone just copied everything once, only half as much stuf woul dbe sold.
Speaking of which, when are these machines that can make anything from anything else coming into existance? I remember my ex's dad talking about them once, but cna't remember the name.

No you wont. As I said before, to copy a commercial DVD you must bypass the CSS copy protection system. Breaking DRM is a crime.
So while yes, you might have the right to make a copy under 'Fair Dealing', the DRM system prevents you from exercising that right.
In conclusion, DRM sucks.
What if you can make a 1:1 without affecting the DRM?
You do have an ERA agreement in place, don't you? This allows the recording of TV broadcasts and the storage on servers, for use in or by the school.Originally Posted by mattx
The real difficulty is with purchaced material. If I record "Romeo + Juliet" from the BBC I can keep it on video, copy to DVD or a server, and keep it forever. If someone loses this copy and I buy a new copy, should I be allowed to digitise and store it on the server? In law, probably not; BUT FFS WHY?
That would be fine.Originally Posted by Midget
Which Act? The RIAA may be able to enforce that in the States, but I'm not so sure here. (IANAL)Originally Posted by Geoff

This depends on the region encoding, if its region 0 then has no DRM encoding.Originally Posted by Geoff
Breaking DRM is not a crime, at least not yet in the uk, but it is in the good ole US of A under the DMCA.
DRM is exactly that, Digital Rights Mananement which is supposed to make it difficult to unencode discs with unlicensed software, however your main issue is copyright, and usually the reason that people want to break DRM is to enable them to infringe on the copyrighted material. Of course there are good reasons to break the DRM as well, for instance I might want to watch a Japanese Manga movie that has been region encoded, if this is the original disc, I can either get a second DVD player with the appropriate region decoder, or get a software decoder on my PC, or many other ways.
However I am usually wrong so take all the above with a pinch of salt.
Your best move is to contact the copyright holder of the DVD and ask them if they will allow you make a copy of the DVD for a media server, get permission in writing (or an email and store it with your licenses), I find hinting that you would be more inclined to buy from there catalogue will increase your chances of getting this permission.

Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 2003. In particular pay attention to regulation 24 and section 296.Which Act?
It is illegal under the Copyright, Designas and Patents Act of 1988. The attempt to bypass any patented system design to enforce or uphold copyright legislation is illegal even for personal use. To then distribute the copies (not just physical disks but electronic content) is a further breach of this act and the sale of such copies is another breach of this act amongst others.
ERA is the common use of recording, storing and copying of free-to-air content within schools and PVSL is the agreement (via Filmbank) to show copyrighted DVDs or Videos that are commercially bought. PVSL does not allow for any form of copying, electronic storing or electronic distribution other that playing the DVD / Video directly from one player to the scree and audience.
There is very clear legislation about this and even though we might not agree with it we cannot say it does not exist.
Nice concluding post Tony hehe
So we shall just ignore it then..... ;-) Like most people.There is very clear legislation about this and even though we might not agree with it we cannot say it does not exist.
Or, we put pressure on "someone" to create a mechanism that allows for this. I'd be happy (ish) if the ERA / PVSL licence cost a bit more to cover it, although the Fat Cats seem to get enough as it is...
There was talk in the press not that long ago about relaxation, but I can't remember the detail. Culture Secretary said something maybe?
