I feel this question should be reopened. I can imagine it was closed in reaction to a flag by the first commenter, but we've all decided that any question regarding DRM is absolutely fine unless it's clearly about warez and whatnot.
I didn't even think about DRM or piracy issues here – is it the word "ripping" that suddenly makes all alarms go off?
The user didn't even talk about removing DRM from these media.
Please reopen this question. Even Jeff says:
Unless it is a clear call for warez, discussion of DRM should be given the benefit of the doubt. […]
Therefore, unless the post looks egregiously illegal, assume it is being asked in good faith about removing DRM on things you own, for your own fair use.
