Basically the rip failed with every single DVD ripper on Linux. It seems they have won the DRM battle to get me not to rip this DVD.
That is until I came across this simple "fix". Simple explanation of the problem:
Some DVDs have bad sectors as a copy protection mechanism, which makes some tools choke. However, ddrescue can rip copy-protected DVDs to iso.Now down to bussiness!
Make sure the DVD is unmounted, then use ddrescue to make an ISO of the disk:
ddrescue /dev/sr0 movie.iso
This may take a while, once this is finished you can use any decoding app, like Handbrake, to rip the ISO.
