I did read the full text but it was last week and I was tired. If you have time and can sum up the important points I'd appreciate it, as I was under the impression that the act of decriminalising the breaking of the encryption gave people a fair amount of wiggle room for backing up personal collections.

Fine, nothing better to do.

III.The Designated Classes
A.Motion pictures on DVDs that are lawfully made and acquired and that are
protected by the Content Scrambling System when circumvention is accomplished
solely in order to accomplish the incorporation of short portions of motion
pictures into new works for the purpose of criticism or comment, and where the
person engaging in circumvention believes and has reasonable grounds for
believing that circumvention is necessary to fulfill the purpose of the use in
the following instances:
&sbull;Educational uses by college and university professors and by college and
university film and media studies students;
&sbull;Documentary filmmaking;
&sbull;Noncommercial videos.


The important thing is that "Noncommercial videos" isn't broad language, it's a subset to to the making new works part. And more ironclad language comes up later:

the circumvention of access controls must be accomplished solely in
order to enable incorporation of short portions of motion pictures into new
works for purposes of criticism of comment.

Well for my music I use mp3fiesta.com which is very cheap and has a large range of tracks, they also have a site that sells films very cheaply in a variety of formats; filmous.com It seems to have allot of films including ones that are still in the cinema... :S I'm not entirely sure how legal it is though :/ since most films are around $1-2 each To buy films you pay first and have a balance on your account rather than paying each time you download.
Hope this helps.

I use 7digital for my legit music and bitsnoop for everything else - paying for illegal movies is stupid imo.

sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but I'm looking for a movie in the 1280x720 size to play on my V8000HDY. I normally rip my regular DVDs onto my computer using DVD Shrink and covert to a AVI file using Handbrake. That gives me files are aroung 720x370 size and they play OK, I just stretch it to fit the 7" screen. But I wanted to play something closer to the Astro Boy trailer that came with my V8000HDY.

Is there a different software I should use or is there a site where I can legally download 1280x720 movies?

Sorry if I sound like a noob. I know some stuff about computers & electronics, but other things I've never even heard of. Also a lot of what I remember is from a decade or two ago.....

DVDs are only in standard def, you have to rip from bluray to get 720p. Most vodo films have a 720p download available, and it's worth repeating that it would be headline news if hollywood films became available in a DRM-free format, legally.

OK, that's what it was. In that case it will be a while before I get a comp w/ a blu-ray drive. Thanks for the tip.
