It turns out that the court has sided with the MPAA in the statement that the RealDVD software, which copies DVDs for personal use, is in fact against the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
The court has decided to put a temporary restriction on RealNetworks, forbidding them to sell its RealDVD software.
Real originally tried to launch RealDVD in September of 2008 as a product which could rip DVDs to a user's hard drive and play them back, while leaving CSS encryption intact but the MPAA immediately filed a lawsuit saying they violated the DMCA because the physical disc must be in the drive during playback.
"We are disappointed that a preliminary injunction has been placed on the sale of RealDVD. We have just received the Judge's detailed ruling and are reviewing it,"..."After we have done so fully, we'll determine our course of action and will have more to say at that time."
