Just move to DVD

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on August 29, 2006 09:18 PM
According to fair use, one can dump the content of the VHS tape into you computer and then burn it to a DVD or any other media that a new player can handle.

Being required to pay money to move software to a new machine is like being required to pay money to be able to transfer the VHS to a new medium.

Hey, if you like to pay for your content over and over again, go for it. Me, I like to just move it to the next meduim without having to pay.
