    rip DVD's/Blue Ray's by now? I mean c'mon...it's not 2003 anymore. Everyone is using high quality material and I'm sure most of you are sick of using third party apps to rip movies. Hopefully it will come with iTunes 10. :D

    Except they risk running afoul of the studios and the DMCA if they do this. You'll be waiting a lot longer than version 10 for these features.

    I like the customizability without 3rd party rippers. And isn't ripping against some kind of DRM?

    Yes, it is, and iTunes ripping DVDs will not happen for a good long time. It's worth noting that iTunes can still rip CDs in the United Kingdom, where doing so is very illegal. Interesting.

    Don't hold your breath on Apple offering anything that violates copyrights.
    Macs don't have Blu-ray players.

    What do you mean? Are you saying ripping your own CDs on iTunes to add them to your iPod is illegal?

    This is based on my (poor) memory, but I believe it was technically a violation of something (DMCA?) but wasn't something that was enforced.

    There are a crapload of antipiracy laws that make ripping DVDs next to impossible. Recently, Real Networks or whatever they're called got ruled against to keep supporting their DVD ripping program.

    And besides, BDR technology is useless. It's not even gaining that much market share. I hardly see people buying movies in disc form, and I see about 1/10 movie disc buyers buy BDR. This isn't the middle of nowhere, I live in the Silicon Valley, where technology stuff is rampant everywhere.

    No, ripping music that you own isn't a copyright violation, unless you share copies of that music with others.

    In the US.

    In some countries it is still technically illegal to rip CD's even for personal use.

    Well, since both the OP who I responded to and I reside in the US, the laws from other countries are irrelevant to my answer.
