its all legal. you stated you bought the movie and are trying to back it up. these software just provide a means to your end thats all. they dont promote downloading pirated movies. dvd decrypter is also a good program that will remove the drm protection as well as the one that were mention above.
I agree that we should/do have some fair use rights, especially since we bought the content. However, I think you are technically breaking the law when stripping the DRM off a file (at least in the US).
