I recall there being a good piece of software on MacUpdate which allowed you to easily copy DVD's under Mac OS X, but MacUpdate pulled it and then his product was pulled from his own web site as legal authorites overran his operation of distrubuting the software.
If you intend to copy commerical DVD's, I wouldn't advise it. Most new DVD's nowadays use highly-advanced security protection on DVD's to make copying them pratically impossible for thr most part, anyway.

this is only theft if he is copying movies that he does not own. I make backup of some of my DVD's and it is perfectly legal for me to do so. I do not sell or give away copies of my backup DVD's to anyone.
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality. Bishop Desmond Tutu
There's the cost of time, the blank disc? Poorer quality video on the movie because to fit a commercial movie onto a single sided/single layer disc it needs to be recompressed and with that you lose picture quality and introduce unwanted artifacts. Also and not least you lose the bonus features on the disc which sometimes are quite interesting.
I agree, it is theft, so why would anyone want to do that? To save a couple of bucks? Not worth it.
