The DVD Copy Control Association, licensor of the Content Scramble System for DVD players, has won a tentative judgment against Kaleidescape, a manufacturer of media servers that copy DVDs to built-in hard drives. A judge has ruled that the system’s licensing agreement requires a physical disc to be in a DVD player for playback. Kaleidescape, among many other manufacturers, allows users to copy DVDs onto the server and watch the movies without physical discs. This case could mean the end for many of the recent movie-server vendors operating a disc-free movie experience. Check out this report by Julie Jacobson, discussing the recent, unpublished and pending ruling and the history of Kaleidescape’s “eight-year war” with DVD CCA: Kaleidescape vs. DVD CCA: Judge Rules Against Movie Servers
The end of disc-free movie servers?
