Court Banned DVD Backup Software

That’s one more win for the MPAA that means one more loss for consumers. US District Court Judge has ruled a permanent injunction against DVD-backup software by Real Networks called RealDVD.

The Judge ruled that RealDVD by making backup copies would most likely violate the Content Scramble System license and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Back in September 2008 RealDVD was launched by Real Networks to allow consumers making backup copies of DVDs they bought – of course, for private use. The Motion Picture Association of America instantly filed a lawsuit for banning its sale and dubbed it “StealDVD”.

Moreover, the MPAA said later that even making one copy of a DVD is already illegal, explaining that the DVD price is associated with certain use rights, and so if people wanted to make copies, then it would have to increase the DVD prices.

Judge’s rulings and that settlement affirmed what the MPAA has said earlier on this litigation. They declare it’s illegal to bypass the copyright protections which are built into DVDs and designed to protect films against theft. They also assure that they’ll continue to pursue companies attempting to bring such devices and products to market.

This case made it quite clear that Real Networks was out for delivering a product which people wanted to see. What it means is if you get into business with the attempt of making consumers to be able to do with their legally purchased DVDs whatever they have done with CDs for a long time, you will just get sued out of business. This doesn’t seem like good news for consumers at all. So the conclusion is if you want to make a digital backup of your DVDs, then you just have to pay for it the second time on iTunes. Nobody cares that users only want to pay once and then be able to do with the product whatever they want.

What’s even worse is that the same company, Real Networks, according to reports, was developing a DVD burner/player called Fact, which would have been able to store over 70 films on its internal HDD. That’s also not the best way to fight piracy. Actually, file-sharers would simply turn to any other illegal alternatives, for example filling up their HDDs with thousands of XViD copies of movies.

So, what are we coming to? Although you are allowed to buy the DVD, the MPAA still decides for you when, where and how you can watch it.

Any more questions why people turn to piracy for content?

Big_A_Little_A avatarNice read SaM,many thanks. You can always trust the MPAA to do what they can to make as much money as they can from what ever way they can,and using the justice system,where most judges have no clue about PSP / file sharing or digital media.

vancouveraussie avatarAs someone who had 2 dozen original DVD's in my car for my children to watch only to return one day to find the car broken into and the DVD's stolen the legitimate reasoning for making backups is pretty clear. Do you think MPAA will send me new copies of the 2 dozen titles for free if I ask nicely?

boatee avatarintresting sam thx,i wonder if they would dare go after microsoft as there operating system copies what you view ie recent files & temp internet files ,so if you do a full backup your just doing what realdvd does "dont ya think?

moviefreak24 avatarThis is crazy!!! Software like this has been around for years and now they decide it's illegal?? If they wanted to ban programs like this, the should have done it a long time ago not let people get used to it and say years later that it's illegal!!! Besides they're just making an example out of this company, because there are others who have had products like this out for much longer and yet they go after the new player on the market?? Paying for a dvd once is more than enough, after that you should be able to do with it whatever you want!!!

menahunie avatarInteresting so the MPAA is basically stating you are not buying the DVD; just the permission to use it like a big software OS Company does. You are not buying the OS; JUST A LICENSE TO USE IT ONLY...
Also not mentioned what about the "streaming" movies like from NETFLIX, etc.???
Was the copyright for the DVD bypassed to digitize the movie for streaming?
Was this movie provided to the streaming companies by the Movie Company???
If not was it digitized by the streaming company with a license from MPAA????
Inquiring minds wanna know huh huh can we know??
