Is it legal to download a film if you already own it on DVD so you can watch it on your smartphone or tablet?

Downloading being easier than ripping and converting!

You can rip your DVD for "back-up". But you must not share that back-up.
When you download the ripped movie, you download someone else's "back-up".

It is illegal.
Having said that, you might well get off the hook in a court case, since you have proof that you own the DVD. And they tend to go after the uploaders rather than the downloaders.

But that means nothing. Fact is: if they want, they'll get you.
