Well, the encryption scheme is used to protect the copy rights covering
the movies themselves.  Thats what i meant with that whole issue

As for following tha law, more power to you.  I follow what I beleive to
be right and just, and accept the consequences if any due to my
actions.  DVD software decoders fall under this category; I own the
movie, I own the player, I will use it as I wish.

Just my 2 cents.
