RealNetworks recently released the RealDVD software that provides DVD copying functionality for customers.  With it, DVD owners can make a single copy of a video for hard drive storage. RealNetworks claims the software offers the required encryption security to protect DVDs copied with it from being illegally shared online.

The MPAA filed a suit against RealNetworks alleging violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and breach of contract in an effort to prevent the selling of RealDVD.  A judge has now ordered RealNetworks to cease selling RealDVD until the case has been reviewed.
