The MPAA actually took the position that a person or an organization should not be allowed to make a backup of a digital file of a movie even though the person has bought the DVD. Valenti would not recognize that DVDs are subject to a host of risks including corruption of the data; erasure by magnets or magnetic fields; melting, warping or bending; scratching, and a host of other problems. He also would have precluded showing a movie on a tablet where the file is written in memory or a number of other basic functions. He sought protection that no other producer of digital intellectual property received. Creators of computer programs, data bases, books, photographs are just a few.
