I believe that people that purchased a dvd/Blu-Ray copy of an anime should be allowed to make personal copies for personal use only. Examples would be to make a back-up copy to play in your car,or on a portable dvd player, or in case the origional gets scratched up, and has problems. Or If you want to rip it to your computer so you can have the episodes on your computer, or to watch episodes on your portable media device.
Isn't there such thing as fair use, which provides an exemption to copyrights restrictions, which would allow someone to use or make personal copies of copyrighted material (In this instance, Funimation licensed anime dvds and episodes) for non-profit, personal, or educational use?
I think that DRM should be removed from the DVDs.
Some people want to rip episodes to play on their devices, or to make a backup of their DVDs.
Please consider this suggestion. Thanks.
