SAN FRANCISCO (04/01/2004) - Federal judges in California and New York have enjoined 321 Studios LLC from distributing its controversial DVD X Copy program. The software, which can make exact duplicates of DVDs by sidestepping encryption codes, is under fire from many movie companies, which maintain that it violates federal copyright laws. Executives at 321 Studios promise to appeal the rulings and are now selling a "ripper free" version of DVD X Copy; users can update the software with free rippers available online.
