That case upheld the click-through/shrinkwrap adhesion contracts.

But, none of the ones listed were an "end-user".  Zeidenberg bought a 
single-user (NOT the commercial user) version of a CD, and made a 
website selling access to the data.

The data in question (phone numbers) was not copyrighted nor 
copyrightable.  The case was about violation of EULA.  He had clicked the 
"I Accept".

I assume that the shutdown of Slysoft (ANYDVD) was facilitated by DMCA.
I do not expect Hollywood to come after a user for copying a few DVDs to 
computer drive.  They would, instead, go after the suppliers of the tools 
for doing so, or those with very deep pockets, or unless they were 
desperate to "make an example", to scare end-users with POSSSIBLE 

The cost of a lawsuit is substantial.  But, I would hate to rely on being 
"potentially technically withing the law" nor "not worth the effort" as 
sole defense.
