I'm not a lawyer, but as long as you have paid for the materials in

There are a couple of ways to get a DVD "ripped" and burnt.  You could
utilize mencoder, part of the mplayer package, to rip the dvd into a
variety of formats and then use dvdrecord to put it onto a different
DVD.  Or you could just utilize dd and dvdrecord to perform the same
task.  If you have a DVD play and a seperate DVD recorder you could
also use something like K3B to rip from the source DVD straight to the
destination DVD...I think!
