Multiple Lawsuits on DVD Copying Software

U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston, Northern District of California, in a hearing of 321 Studios v. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (C-02-1955.e), is reported to be substantially persuaded in favor of copyright holders as she considers whether it is fair use for consumers to continue to purchase and use a $50 (after rebate) DVD duplication software application which the movie industry contends circumvents the DMCA and should be banned. See my previous post on 321 Studios, and this Reuters article on new industry lawsuits against five more companies that market DVD copying software.
