OK, Steve... Here's the deal: you have a LEGALLY ACQUIRED copy of a film
(Disney be damned) that has the oxide wearing off. You have made DOCUMENTED
efforts to buy a replacement at a fair market price, but no dice. I'm gonna
go out on a limb and say that the practice of making a copy would (might?)
hold up...I do have to say that I'd feel more comfortable copying an OP copy
of "Matralineal Descent Among the Gurrarumba" than "Bambi," but then again,
I'm a conservative (and chicken) kind of guy...
