Supposing you found that you do have rights to make a backup copy of the content of your BD but that BD uses some protection mechanism and firmware software which comes with your writer is no good here. What software can be of help? Well it depends on what protection mechanism is used.
Most protected Blu-Ray discs use AACS protection which is advanced CSS encryption used in DVDs. What programs can be used to rip AACS protected discs? There are no many these days. I know only of two of them, namely: AnyDVD from SlySoft and BluRay & DVD Decrypter from Voodoo Media Software. AnyDVD is shareware and BluRay & DVD Decrypter is freeware. I use the latter. Without going deep into technical aspects of grabbing the protected BDs, briefly the success of ripping of some particular disc depends on whether program has special key for this particular media. BluRay & DVD Decrypter has two mechanisms for obtaining these keys. Program connects to the special database of the keys (which gets updated weekly so chances that your BD`s key is already there are good) or you can manually enter the key (which can be requested on their community forum).
