Part 1. What is DVD Copy
It's easy to damage or lost your DVD during your using, and it is depressed if you can't find your precious memories back. Although simply playing a DVD will not cause it to become damaged, they can pick up dust as well as tiny scratches whenever you take them in and out of the case. Over time, this can cause them to fail. So it is always important to copy your DVD as backups.
If you're looking to copy a DVD that is of a commercial nature, there are other considerations to take into account. Most commercial DVDs will contain copy protection and embedded encryption, which are designed to prevent you from making a DVD to DVD copy. Known as DRM (digital rights management), this will need to be cracked in order to copy DVD to DVD, and the moment you crack this protection, you are in violation of Title 1 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. In reality, if you're copying to DVD simply as a backup to your own collection of DVDs, you are unlikely to be caught. Copying a homemade DVD to another DVD is perfectly legal, so there're no worries for you.
