    I am backing up my favourite video tapes onto DVDs using a DVD-recorder.
    Some of them have copy protection and this stops me copying them.

    Since I have paid for the videos and am only trying to preserve them for
    when my VCR dies, I wonder if there is a legal way to do this.

    Someone told me that there is free software to do video capture on a PC. Can
    anyone help me?

    Thanks
    Mike
