There are a few bulk ripping services for music CDs, one example being musicshifter.com - you ship them the discs, they rip them and send the originals plus the ripped versions back to you.
However, in the USA they only do music CDs and not DVDs since the DMCA makes it legally precarious to rip DVDs due to them having copy-prevention on them (even if that copy-prevention is trivially defeated and completely ineffective, it is still good enough to qualify under the terms of the DMCA).
Copyright is not property, it is merely a temporary loan from the public domain.
