Wired/Reuters: Movie Studios File DVD Hack Suit

“The seven largest US movie studios filed their own lawsuits
Friday to prevent several Internet sites from distributing a
program that could allow copying of DVD movies.”

“The lawsuits, filed in federal courts in New York and
Connecticut, followed a broader lawsuit filed last month in state
court in California by a DVD equipment manufacturers group….”

The people who posted the code said they had done nothing
wrong, insisting that the program was meant to allow viewing of DVD
movies under Linux.
