To burn or not to burn? Is that really what is at question here?

The way my desk is situated right now, I look over the shoulder of the
network admin.  This might be a good thing if you consider that I
have more experience at that job than he does.  For him it must be
a bad thing.  Today I spent the afternoon watching him burn
(backup) copies of DVD movies.  This was an all consuming task for
him.  Ok, not all consuming, he did manage to multitask and baby
sit a Windows XP install at the same time.

Is it bad form to make (backup) copies of DVD’s?  Is it bad to
make said (backup) copies at work?  Should this be covered in the
Acceptable Computer Usage Agreement that I, and I assume he, had to

Which of these questions has the worse answer?
