Though with the law, I thought it wasn't legal for instance to show a DVD/video you have to a wide audience So depends how many friends you have I guess, haha.

It would be illiegal to do that, yes.

The only way it would be legal was if you got the VHS tape to be recorded onto the computer and converted. Possibly using a Video Capture Card.

You could make a backup copy yourself, but its not your license your downloading. Your co-inciding with a breakage of the law on their end also, so its not just your end.

No, it wasn't flaming, but that rule also covers condemnation of posters, definition of condemnation ; "exclaiming disapproval of", which you did, in a sort of light-hearted way, but I still think it was unnecessary.

Lol, that would be a cool idea. David could pay him $500 per hour to browse the forum and sort out things...

{This starts to seem like what a moderator does for free, lol}...

You have a 'license' to watch the movie in your home because you purchased the video on vhs so yes you can download it
