RealDVD Temporarily Shut Down

Chris Albrecht at NewTeeVee is reporting that the RealDVD site has been temporarily taken down until at least Tuesday when a judge will review the matter. This comes following lawsuits filled by both RealNetworks and the MPAA last week. (see previous story)

RealNetworks gained a minor legal victory by having the case moved from a Central District Court of California in Los Angeles (the studios’ home turf) to a Northern District court.

RealNetworks is asking for a
declaratory judgment against DVD Copy Control Association, Inc., Disney Enterprises, Inc., Paramount Pictures Corp., Sony Pictures Entertainment, Inc., Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., NBC Universal, Inc., Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc., and Viacom, Inc., in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The lawsuit asks the court to rule that the RealDVD software fully complies with the DVD Copy Control Association’s license agreement.
