It's a concept called 'Fair Use' which was eliminated in the US for digital media. The idea being once you bought the media (CD, DVD, LP, Tape) you had the right to listen or watch it regardless of whether you where using the original media or not. This was eliminated with the DMCA (if I am remember right). It is now illegal in the US to simply sell a product that may bypass any method of protecting copy written material.
