Kaleidescape vs. DVD CCA: Judge Rules Against Movie Servers

Kaleidescape, a prominent manufacturer of high-end movies servers, has lost its latest battle in its eight-year war against the DVD Copy Control Association, the organization that licenses the Content Scramble System (CSS) for DVD players. The DVD CCA sued Kaleidescape in 2004, arguing that its products violate a licensing agreement that expressly prohibits the copying (ripping, archiving) of DVDs. Judge William J. Monahan of the Santa Clara County Superior Court in California issued the tentative judgment favoring the DVD CCA on Jan. 9, 2012. The ruling is subject to revision pending input from the two parties. If it stands as written, the DVD CCA can permanently prohibit Kaleidescape from selling DVD movie servers, unless the disc is present at playback (or some other authentication mechanism is in place) -- effectively killing the movie server category as we know it.. The DVD CCA also may collect court costs.
