12 Ways to Rip DVDs and Blu-rays
Last week's Kaleidescape ruling has left us looking for new (and legal) ways to get our digital fix.
March 19, 2012 by Rachel Cericola

Last week’s court ruling against Kaleidescape doesn’t mean the death knell for digital copies. Oh, no no no.

See, people have actually been making digital copies since the dawn of the first DVD—for personal use, of course. (Ahem.)

Despite what movie studios may think, most people making digital copies aren’t giving them out at the office or selling them on street corners. Consumers who purchase physical media want to be able to enjoy it wherever and whenever they want. Is that so wrong?

Well, it’s sort of a gray area, at least as far as the web is concerned. That said, there are plenty of people selling disc-to-digital services and software, making media servers, and even giving away their encryption creations.

Of course, some are probably more legal than others, so if you do embark on one of these options, be prepared to do so at your own risk. (Sorry, no one from Electronic House is going to post bail for you.)

With that in mind, let’s take a peek at 12 ways that can currently turn those DVDs and Blu-rays into digital. Ready? Click for the slideshow and let ‘er rip!
