RealDVD Ban is Upheld
A judge this week upheld the decision barring RealDVD, the DVD-copying software released last week by RealNetworks but immediately challenged by movie studios.
According to Wired, U.S. District Judge Marilyn Hall Patel upheld her decision from last week, after reviewing documents related to the case. She concluded that there is sufficient evidence that the technology violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Patel is the same judge who presided over the Napster litigation in the late 1990s.
