A legal fight erupted Tuesday over the ability of consumers to copy DVDs onto their computers, setting the stage for a new battle between Hollywood and a purveyor of technology that could alter how consumers watch movies at home.
The six major Hollywood movie studios sued Seattle-based Real Networks, asking a federal court in Los Angeles to bar the digital media company from distributing new software that they say lets consumers copy movies illegally.
If this is a major problem for Hollywood, then why are they including a digital copy of the movies on DVDs now. I have five movies that have digital copies that I can download on my laptop and if I wanted I could share them over the net.
Did Hollywood raise the same complaints when VHS video recorder came out..
