Depends on the file and what is being done with the DVD.

Removing things that support the license/DRM control could be considered a DMCA violation even if it isn't an encrypted disk (same with audio CDs - they aren't copy protected, but you still aren't allowed to copy them, even though people do).

Fair enough.

Depends on your jurisdiction. It is for example allowed to copy Audio CDs without copy protection for personal use (including family and close friends) in Germany.

Why I was copying the Windows 7 DVD....

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate DVD with license.

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium license without the DVD.

I am reinstalling software due to http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175500121/

It is possible install Home Premium with the Ultimate DVD if you do as described by http://www.mydigitallife.info/how-to...-media-or-iso/
