Is it legal to check out a DVD or CD from the library and copy it to your computer for personal use?

Bruce Flanders, director of the Lawrence Public Library, said he didn’t think it would be legal, and a local attorney agreed. “It is my understanding that that would not be legal,” Flanders said. “It’s the same as going to a photocopier and copying an entire book.” He said doing that would go beyond the boundaries of fair use.
