That form generates emails that I can then send to sales to show them that they really need to stop doing this.

I agree. It seems shocking that the sales team would need any reminder after that debacle. After that incident, in this thread I pushed for sales team policies to change. It appears that fell on deaf ears. Here's a quote from me in that thread that seems rather applicable now:
I'm mainly interested in whether you have advocated on our behalf that the sales team change their policy going forward to have standards that align with forum content rules for what contracts they will sign in the future. I get how the current situation arose, but it should be something that informs a different policy going forward.
IBJoel, in that thread you said this:

It has happened again. Are we going to re-word the rules or not?

That DVDFab ad sure looks sponsored and not Google generated...

I'm talking to our business lead about it.

Is DVD piracy still even a concern?

I think that 99.99% of the people who are going to use a ripper are just going to use it back-up their own DVDs and possibly transfter them to a HTPC.

If someone wants to pirate a movie, there a easier ways to do it these days.

Yeah, I was thinking that myself. I'll freely admit that I used to copy DVDs from time to time (with free software) but that was over a decade ago. It seems like ancient history to me now, ripping DVDs seems so quaint. Honestly, I have way too much stuff to watch on the streaming services I subscribe to now, I don't need to rip anything.

Speaking as a consumer, no. Speaking as a studio person/rep., it's one of the things that irks them to no end.
