  • Court Setback For DVD Copying

    (AP) A federal judge ruled Friday that a software program that copies DVDs violates the copyrights of Hollywood studios.

    Judge Susan Illston ruled in San Francisco that software made by Chesterfield, Mo.-based 321 Studios violates the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which prohibits the circumvention of anti-piracy measures such as the Content Scramble System protecting movies on DVDs.

    The judge ordered the company to cease making or distributing such software within seven days of her order.

    The company said it would appeal the ruling and ask for a stay during the process.
