Hollywood battling 'DVD copying'

May 6, 2009

Hollywood has locked horns with the technology industry over who will control digital entertainment and how it is watched...

Fred Von Lohmann, a senior lawyer with the Electronic Frontier Foundation suggested the picture is not so black and white.

"Hollywood says that without encryption, the DVD market would collapse. I say, the pirates have already won, the software to copy is free and you're still selling DVDs."

"The sky has not fallen," added Mr Von Lohmann.
