Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
You must be wondering why you are not allowedto convert and import DVDs to iTunes as it seems not such a bigchallenge which Apple could not resolve. And once you rip DVD toiTunes, the DVD movies could be available within the whole Apple-lineproducts: Windows and Mac iTunes library, Apple TV, iPod, iPhone, andeven iPad.
Soundslike it is possible to make the best of both worlds, however, Apple isnot likely to say yes, at least for the following three points:
1:The entertainment giant will kill every product that hurt theircopyright protection, even if their position isn't legally tenable,they could try to tie down Apple in expensive litigation.
2:Convert DVD to iTunes would not add up Apple's financial interest, butonly shrink the demand for its online iTunes Store. Apple could earnfrom $3 to $15 per click, depending if you rent or buy. So why not staywith the profits?
3: Because there are already so many freeware/shareware can do ripping DVD to iTunes.
