Ask LH: Is It Legal To Transfer VHS Tapes To DVD?

Hey Lifehacker, My hobby is collecting old VHS tapes bought from op shops, but I don’t want to ruin the tapes by watching them repeatedly. Is it legal to transfer the tapes to DVD? Similarly, is it legal to transfer cassettes onto CD? The answers online seem to conflict wildly.
