Well it is possible, just illegal.

If someone were to do that I would guess that they would rip the DVD using Mac the Ripper and then convert it to DV format using ffmpegX and then just import it in the normal way.

Thanks for the reply. I actually do have permission to do this for a company whose DVD is theirs. I am just slicing some clips together from their DVD so they can use at Events and such. Thanks for the help.
