DVD copying to be illegal soon?

I hope you don't enjoy backing up your DVD movies. It looks like another amendment has been proposed that would ban all forms of DVD copying.

This is not limited simply to copying from disk-to-disk, this also includes ripping a movie onto your Media Center PC so you can watch it whenever you want. To make things short, anything other than putting a DVD into a player and watching it would be considered illegal.

Granted, this has been attempted before and failed, but I still don't like to hear about it. Microsoft was talking the other day about how in the future we won't rely on disks to hold our media. At the rate things are going, disks will be the only thing that can hold our media.
