I guess that judge has never heard of the Fair Use Act.
Most judges of her status earn enough not to have to worry about fair use. They just go out and buy another copy or two…
Real is still in business?

You are correct rich people don’t have to worry about the cost of replacing kid destroyed or worn out media.
It would be really nice to see them brought down to the average just getting by hard working persons wages
then maybe they wouldn’t be so high and mighty and think twice about allowing a person to make a back up
of their legally bought and hard work paid for media. :a
While I don’t really care about the RealDVD software itself, I supported Real in their legal case. Apparently they determined it wasn’t profitable to pursue the legal battle. Too bad.
That leaves the field open for Slysoft to take over as they always been doing. A big + for slysoft they will continue to forge on and beat those stupid protection that does no one any good.
