    Okay so I have recently started to get the Digital Copy's of DVDs and Blu-Rays and I'm wondering what happens if I lose them or I change my Mac, do I need to back them up or can I download them again?

    Back them up - most all codes are one time activation codes. Meaning if you use it once it won't work again. Also most of those codes have an expiration date of a year or so.

    I actually recently bought Rambo and it had a digital copy that was supposed to expire like 3 YEARS ago but it still worked-no idea why.....

    They are hit and miss on if they actually get shut down when the "final" date rolls around from what I have seen. Also, I noticed when I got a new computer it actually let me download 2 movies to it through my iTunes account even though they were already downloading to a different computer so it may be kept on your account like music.

    I would personally test that theory before not backing them up though. :D

    Thanks for the replies so far, but my main question seems to of been avoided or I didn't make it clear enough. Currently, iTunes allows you to download all of your music again if you have to wipe and start your machine from scratch. I know because a friend of mine has recently had to do this a few times. So will the movies be in my iTunes Accounts to download again?
