It's Illegal Not To Include Copy Protection In DVD Players?
from the but-why? dept
Thanks to John for passing on this story that Samsung is facing a lawsuit from a number of movie studios, though over what is still a bit up in the air. Samsung believes it's about a DVD player they stopped making and shipping over a year ago. The movie studios are upset that people could use the DVD player to avoid DVD copy protection, but it's not entirely clear (1) why that's illegal and (2) why the studios are suddenly interested in this so long after the product has been removed from the market.
