Court puts DVD-copying decision on hold
A New York federal judge on Tuesday temporarily put on hold a ruling against 321 Studios, which makes DVD-copying software, pending a hearing next week. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Owen ruled last week that 321 Studios' software violated copyright laws and that the company must stop selling its DVD products.
Owen's ruling on Friday has little practical effect, however, since a similar ban, instituted by San Francisco federal Judge Susan Illston, is in effect. The company is still seeking a stay of Illston's order, and has said it would appeal both judgments.
