Court Hears 321 Studios Argument

PRESS RELEASE
May 15, 2003

Judge Susan Illston of the Northern District of California heard arguments in 321 Studios v. Metro Goldwyn Mayer this morning on whether 321's DVD backup software violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

"Fair use and the DMCA have been on a collision course since 1998," said EFF Staff Attorney Wendy Seltzer. "The judge's ruling in this case will tell whether fair use survives the crash."
