Re: Watching DVD movies on Linux - but, probably illegal

Just be aware that you're probably in violation of the DMCA (and similar) laws in many areas if you use linux distros with the ability to play commercial DVDs.

I'd love to litigate that. I'd like to hear an explanation any judge and jury would accept that shows how I can perfectly legally play a commercial DVD on a Windows machine, a Mac, a stand-alone DVD player, an Xbox, my cousin's SUV, dozens of portable DVD players, etc., but not legally on a Linux box.

Go ahead; make my day.
