Apparently Circuit City never got the memo that it's illegal to copy DVDs and break their encryption, as the company now offers a service to do just that and transfer the film to your iPod for a mere $10 a pop. Technically, it isn't illegal to make copies of films you own for personal use, however according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act it is illegal to crack the copy protection on a DVD, even if you own it. While there are plenty of free programs out there that make it fairly easy to illegally rip movies on your own, this is the first instance of a large consumer-electronics chain so blatantly breaking the law, and profiting from the results. But hey, it says you can only have movies ripped that are "of your own DVD collection," so I guess they'll somehow be able to tell you're really just borrowing all your roommate's DVDs and will refuse to take your money. I'd say hurry up and go before they cancel this law-breaking service, but you'd be a sucker to give Circuit City $10 to do something you can do for free on your own. Not that we would ever suggest you do something illegal. Ahem.
