    $44/unit? If I had the money I would not pay that. Even if it was my top 22,868 titles with none I would hate or never rewatch, that price is bloated.

    Largest "legal" movie collection. I guarantee there are many larger collections.

    It really depends on how many "65 mustang" type titles are in there. The average per unit is moot if there are a handful of titles worth thousands.

    Yeah the collector thing or increasing value on some titles never occurred to me. Still I find it hard to imagine. Not gonna run the numbers or validate anything, I'm just gonna not spend the million that I don't have on this particular "investment".

    Are they "Legal" if they've all been ripped to his server?

    FWIW, I did skim through the list. there are a bunch of films I'd be interested in, but a bunch I have zero interest in.
    But I guess the point is moot, as I don't have $1M to throw at my media collection...

    1) First sale doctrine, which is what allows you to re-sell a DVD in the first place, doesn't cover keeping a copy.
    2) While I don't have a moral problem ripping a movie I own, you can't rip a movie on DVD or Blu-Ray without violating the law. They're encrypted and cracking that encryption violates the DMCA.
    3) As soon as he sells the disks, any ripped copy he has becomes pirated IMO, just as if he had downloaded them from the internet or ripped them from Netflix copies.

    I agree, my query was a bit tongue in cheek ;)

    Side thought on ripping stuff you own. If you're not allowed to by law and optical media doesn't last forever, what happens when your disc becomes unplayable?

    Technically, not unless he deletes them.

    Yep. And while this sucks, its the law and puts you in a bit of a caveat emptor state. Like I said, if you legally own it, rip away. No one is coming and busting down doors of anyone who isn't sharing movies.

    The same thing has happened with streaming purchases by the way. I own a few iTunes movies that are no longer for sale (for the time being) on iTunes. If I hadn't downloaded my copy I couldn't watch them. The same has happened with Amazon losing rights to books. If its on your kindle, you are fine. If it was only in the cloud, you can't read that book until the rights issues potentially gets sorted out. I would be majorly PISSED if I couldn't watch a movie I had purchased but the take away is download your media.
