[rumori] Industry pooping their BVDs over people duping their DVDs

Start-up company 321 Studios creates software that allows users to make
copies of DVDs. In April the company took the proactive step of asking
a federal court to declare its product legal, given threats from the
movie industry for copyright-infringement lawsuits. This week, seven
movie studios filed such a suit, saying that 321 Studios violates the
Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by selling illegal products
that cause "grave and irreparable harm" to the movie industry. 321
Studios sells a product called DVD Copy Plus, which makes less than
optimal copies of DVDs, and a newer product called DVD-Xcopy, which
creates exact copies of DVDs. Representatives from 321 Studios argue
that their products are intended for owners of DVDs to make back-up
copies for their own use, an action that is protected as fair use.
