http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46676 Judge Owen PLAINTIFF PARAMOUNT Pictures Corp. alleged that 321 Studios violated the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) by manufacturing and selling, or trafficking, in a computer software product that permits the possessor of a digital versatile disk (DVD) encoded by a protective technological measure known as the Content Scramble System (CSS) to decode the CSS, and thereby make identical copies of those DVDs. Plaintiffs moved for a preliminary injunction and defendant moved to transfer the action to the Northern District of California. The court granted plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction, finding that manufacturing and distributing CSS software for sale violates the anti-trafficking provisions of the DMCA. The court noted a recent decision in the Northern District of California involving the same software at issue in this case, where the court issued an injunction against the manufacture and distribution of defendant’s DVD copying software.
