    Good idea? I rented taken from the local movie store, should I rip it?

    Bad idea. Whether you believe it to be right or wrong ... it is illegal.

    No, unless you own it (I do this with movies I own on Blu-ray). Do people not understand the concept of stealing?

    You can if you feel the need, you won't get caught, it's just up to you whether or not you feel it's right. There's a fine line.

    At least then you won't be bothered by those pesky "Don't steal this movie informercials". That's some wicked irony right there...

    Yes, why not?
    If you want to watch it again, give it to your friends, or share it via torrenting, then do it.
