A new survey conducted by National Consumers League has found that consumers want to be able to make backup copies of their DVDs. Out of the 1000 people surveyed, 90% agreed that DVD owners should be able to copy a DVD to their computer in the same way that they save music from a CD. Half of those surveyed were also bothered that they couldn't save DVDs to their hard drives without cracking the encryption or purchasing an expanded version of the DVD.
Americans' attitudes towards DVDs are evolving and driving expectations about their use, according to a new survey released today by the National Consumers League. The Opinion Research Corporation survey of 1,000 consumers, aged 18-64, who own a personal computer, conducted March 11-16, finds that -- amidst a backdrop of a slowing market and troubled economy, when consumers' satisfaction may be more important than ever -- Americans are overwhelmingly interested in the ability to copy or back up their DVDs to their computers and laptops.
With 69 percent of respondents reportedly watching DVDs on their computers, and with more than a third saying they've had to repurchase lost or damaged DVDs in the past, consumers are resoundingly interested in the ability to back-up their DVD content. According to the survey, 90 percent (and 93 percent of those with children in the household) agree that DVD owners should be able to copy a DVD to their computer in the same way that they save music from a CD.
