    Default Apple and FOX to allow DVD ripping from iTunes
    We've all heard the iTunes movie rental rumors. Confirmed, in fact.

    Now Apple and FOX have also penned a deal which will allow consumers to rip FOX DVDs they purchase directly into and from iTunes. Apparently, the DVDs will include an iPhone/iPod formatted version of the movie directly on the disc, which iTunes will import.

    Previously, movies could only be imported into iTunes by purchasing them from the iTunes store, or using 3rd party software to rip the DVD, convert it, and import into iTunes.

    I have a feeling this would only be available on Blu-ray or HD. Conserving space for two copies on an 8.5GB DVD would lower the quality of the movie. Or would it rip the primary movie using a copyright encryption?

    Considering Apple doesn't sell any computers with BluRay or HDDVD drives, I would doubt that.

    i don't think this would be too difficult to pull off. when i put a movie or dvd on my itouch it usually has to be converted and naturally since the video doesnt need to be the same resolution of the dvd its file size shrinks. in conclusion i dont think there will be two versions of the movie on the dvd, but instead itunes will simply rip and convert the movie directly from the dvd. there will probably be some problems with dvd copy protection, but since CSS has already been cracked i dont think it will be a big deal.
