Is it possible to copy a commercial VHS tapes?

by on July 29, 2009

Q: I am a martial arts teacher and I have hundreds of commercial martial arts related VHS tapes (copyrighted) that ain’t getting any younger. I want to convert them into DVD as I invested a lot of money to make this collection.

Is there any way to do that considering the copyright issue?

    As for copyright issues I am not a lawyer but it seems you bought the videos and if you want to view them as digital files on your computer or a dvd it seems like that should be your choice.
