Camcorders, Not DVD Ripping: MPAA to Teachers
Naturally, there's no way to directly record a DVD using a VCR; that particular loophole was closed when DVDs first came out. So ripping to use clips would seem the only solution, right? No, of course, not. The MPAA feels a better way to do this is to record DVD being played on a TV with a camcorder.
Of course! How simple (insert sarcasm here), and how lame. Of course, they promote this method because they don't want anyone ripping DVDs even if for a legitimate use. It might (gasp!) make people think there are legal uses for DVD ripping.
It's a good thing we weren't there; we might have burst out laughing. Watch the video:
