A loss for digital rights…

In a defeat for Fair Use rights, 321 Studios was issued an injunction from a federal judge instructing them to stop producing or selling their software product DVD X-Copy. The software allows you to backup your DVD’s to recordable DVDs, a right that seems perfectly reasonable (especially given that it IS legal to backup CDs).

Hopefully a higher court will hear this, and come to their senses.

One reply on “A loss for digital rights…”

I looked at their software today at Best Buy. Was tempted to pick it up before The Law came a’callin. But it was $70 and I suddenly had a case of the neverminds.
