I have no desire to pirate anything. If I like it, I buy it. Period. These days I'm doing a lot more streaming video for things I don't care too much about quality. I buy them on VUDU. For things that quality matters, I obviously get the blu-ray but I want to repackage it into a useful format to stream around my house on my gigabit lan. I own over 600 blu-rays which I find to be too much to rip all at once. So I generally take the most watched movies and rip those. When I rent movies on Netflix, it's not about ripping as I don't own them. It's about using the player *I* want not the player I'm "required" to. In my case, that'd be MC21 with LAV filters and madvr tweaked for my Panny plasma. PowerDVD doesn't even come close. Besides the fact that MC scans the disc, and plays the movie without all the nonsense. THAT is what AnyDVD is designed for. If I'm not able to do that with my legally purchased discs, then screw em....I'll start renting more and buying less.
