This new “disc-to-digital” program introduced on Wednesday provides consumers a convenient way to convert existing movie libraries into a digital form. The idea behind this program is to stop pirating DVD and Blu-ray movies and to slim down some of those larger movie collections.
With any new idea, there has already been some controversy regarding this program. Some critics are saying that people should keep rights to copies of movies that were purchased on their own. Even though pricing has not been released yet, the process requires someone to buy and movie and then pay to have it copied.
Is this really a convenient method? Or should people have the right to buy a DVD and make a copy themselves?
