Uncertain Future for DVD X Copy

  1. The future of DVD X Copy, "a 321 software application that copies DVD movies onto CD-R discs," may be uncertain, following "motions from the seven studios claiming that 321 Studios two products (DVD Copy Plus and DVD X Copy) are illegal under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and should be removed from the market."

    "Worried about the threat of criminal charges, Moore and his company soon filed what's known as an action for declaratory relief, asking the court to rule that DVD Copy Plus is not in violation of the DMCA"

    I certainly can't work out what's wrong with me wanting to make additional copies of DVD movies that I have legally bought, to protect them from damage. That seems to be "acceptable use" to me.
