Court Orders RealDVD Pulled
The DVD-copying software RealDVD, developed by RealNetworks, has been ordered pulled for shelves, after a judge granted an injunction in response to a lawsuit from the motion picture industry.
“Due to recent legal action taken by the Hollywood movie studios against us, RealDVD is temporarily unavailable,” reads a message posted on the RealDVD Web site. “Rest assured, we will continue to work diligently to provide you with software that allows you to make a legal copy of your DVDs for your own use.”
The issue will be revisited again in court on Tuesday, after a judge has had the opportunity to read all documents in the case.
