No, it's 100% legal. I'm aswell 100% sure of it. They can't be sure WHICH device you copied it from, and they would NEVER drag a court case over it. But why are you all so afraid of downloading files illegally? Is american law different? I guess it is if your debating it. But in canada, if you legally purchased a media, it may be stored on ANY other media device, including ipods, dvd's and flash media, as long as it is not redistributed.

You could look at it two ways:

Legal: You already have purchased the video.
Illegal: You are downloading an illegal version of it.

But it should be legal as long as you don't redistribute to your friends.

if you did everything according to the copyright then it should be legal unless it states differently
