Submission + - Judge rules against RealDVD (wired.com)

mattOzan writes: "Judge Marilyn Hall Patel was unswayed by RealNetwork's defense of their product under the Fair Use Doctrine, as she declared RealDVD illegal and barred its distribution. As she said in her ruling, "So while it may well be fair use for an individual consumer to store a backup copy of a personally owned DVD on that individual's computer, a federal law has nonetheless made it illegal to manufacture or traffic in a device or tool that permits a consumer to make such copies.""
