    The following scenario is purely hypothetical: :)
    Okay so let's say I have a dvd and want to rip it (using mactheripper). if i give the same dvd to a friend will he be able to just copy the dvd to his computer? Does mac the ripper take away the copyright (DRM) protection forever or just once?
    Thanks

    Mac the ripper does not get rid of the DRM on the disk. It does nothing to the disk at all other than read it. It just copies the DVD data and makes a copy on your harddrive without the DRM. Its like ripping a CD using itunes. The music does not leave the CD while being copied.
