Here is a genuine case:
Q: If I create the .iso of my master and burn it back to my new DVD, is that the same thing as having software that duplicates the DVD? Is that what a DVD duplicator is doing behind the scenes?
A: Well, it is - and it isn't. As long as you're talking NON-DRM source DVD it is. And that's exactly what a DVD (or CD) duplicator is doing. Add DRM and it's a different story. Commercial DVD duplicators deal with the DRM issues.
