    Hi,

    New guy here. I just want to know, does the clone dvd software put an identifier on the copy you make? That is, can it be traced back to you?

    Thanks,

    No, Slysoft doesn't play games like that. :disagree:

    even if it did,you ARE legally entitled to make back up copies of cd's and dvd's for your own personal use.

    Edit:

    All I will say is this: Americans are allowed to make backups--but not if they circumvent digital copy protection measures in order to do so. Ever read Catch-22? That's a rhetorical question.

    Then using AnyDVD would be illegal, because it circumvents digital copy protections.

    I'm not sure I want to say anything further, but I will say you're quick on the draw.

    Anydvd isn't illegal where I am.

    I think I'll ask a mod to see if my posts are ok here. Sometimes a mod needs a mod.

    It's illegal for most people that use it then, since most are from the U.S. Either way, I believe people should be able to backup a movie they bought. No redistributing it though.

    You know, Elaborate Bytes is in Switzerland, and I believe many of the people associated with Slysoft are European. So I suspect there's a large European base of Slysoft software customers.

    I could not possibly agree with you more. I think the U.S. law is brutally unfair. You have "fair use" rights--but not if you're trying to get around the copy protection in order to produce your backup . . . lol Yeah, that's brutal.

    A lot of European countries have laws against copying movies too though.

    If you own a DVD and want to make 1 backup for archival purposes then it is fine. If you make them and give them to your friends it is not fine. Everybody should check the laws of there specific countrys and abide by them. :policeman: Enough said.
