"The OpenDVD Group has established as an affiliate with reel.com, an online movie retailer, to donate the proceeds from DVD movies bought through the OpenDVD.org website to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the organization that is funding the costs for the defense in the DeCSS/DVD lawsuits."

"OpenDVD.org serves as an online resource for people wishing to learn more about implementing and extending DVD technology. Recently, the focus of the efforts has been on informing the community and the public to the issues revolving around the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) and its effects on consumers. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) have both filed lawsuits on the basis of the DMCA. Both organizations wish to block technology and fail to address the issues at hand."
