I'm wondering how many people are using Netflix to build their personal movie collections. It's not hard to find software to software to "rip" or decrypt a DVD-based movie and then burn it onto CD or DVD (no, I'm not going to tell you how to do this). I've seen samples of this and some of the results are very impressive.
I'm not interested in copying movies since the street price is typically under $20. If I really want to own a movie I'll buy a real copy, but I typically watch a movie once and want to watch something else next. I have about 24,712 movies in the Netflix collection to go...
How many people are doing this and what you think about this?
Just for the record: I have never copied a movie rented from Netflix (I went to Catholic school and feel much better now that I said that).
