At Two Squares we take copyright laws seriously. Are we able to take your Hollywood movie VHS collection and turn it into DVDs? Unfortunately the answer is no. Doing so would be a violation of copyright laws. Many of these movies are already commercially available on DVD or digital. Not only is that the legal way to buy the movies, but it is going to be a better copy then transferring from VHS (and probably less expensive too!).
Who can make copies of a piece of media?
It is important to understand that in general, unless you were the one who created a recording, it is not legal for you to make copies of it.
It is a common misconception that after purchasing a movie or music recording you own it and can do whatever you want with it. That is not true!
When purchasing a movie or music recording, you are actually obtaining a licensed copy to use for your personal use. Making copies of that recording is a right reserved by the copyright holder (ie. the person who created the recording).
