Here are some technical pointers for using Films On Demand:
It is illegal to break the encription codes that are present on most DVD's. Harvard Law has published a white paper, The Digital Learning Challenge: Obstacles to Educational Uses of Copyrighted Material in the Digital Age -- A Foundational White Paper, available in its entirety at http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/media/files/copyrightandeducation.html#2_2
In order to use a DVD in Moodle or any other LMS you have to break the Digital Rights Management encryption and so in Harvard's words "... educators are potentially vulnerable to civil or even criminal penalties if they interfere with whatever technological restrictions rightsholders choose to impose on the use of content [of DVD's]."
Films on Demand has granted us the right to use these videos for IUP educational purposes without any red tape or threat of legal action.
