No. After a 2010 Chronicle post (https://www.chronicle.com/blogs/profhacker/information-on-the-new-dmca-exemptions) about the Library of Congress’s statement of new exemptions to the anti-circumvention provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act we received this question numerous times.
- Circumventing a DVD's content scrambling system (CSS)
- Copying (aka "ripping") small portions or excerpts from the DVD
- Copying (aka "ripping") the entire DVD
Please see "Digital Copyright Exemptions Benefit Educators, Filmmakers and Smartphone Owners" by George A. Pike, for a good explanation of this recent development.
