DVD X Copy Software Resurfaces


A Taiwan-based site is offering to sell the DVD copying software once sold by defunct 321 Studios Inc., which was driven out of business last week.

DVDXCopy2.com, appears to have mirrored some of the content once found on the 321 Studios website, including images and endorsements from various computer magazines and review sites. Web browsers accessing the site's "secure server" did not detect the use of any form of encryption, however, possibly implying that the site is not legitimate.

The site is registered to an "admin" email address at DVDXcopy.com, one of the URLs used to sell the 321 Studios DVD ripping software. A lookup of the registration information reveals that the site's tech contact is Doff Wu, also listed in conjunction with a Taipei address. Wu could not be contacted at press time for comment.

321 Studios closed down last week, bringing to an end nearly two years of legal battles with Hollywood studios which felt the software was in violation of federal law. In February, the company was barred from selling its DVD copying engine, and the site posted a notice saying that it could no longer continue.

321's legal battles began in early 2002, when the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) accused the company of selling piracy software in violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and threatened legal action. A representative for the MPAA could not be contacted for comment by press time.

Now, the remaining 321 Studios inventory is being sold by Jambalaya Brands, which is not only offering a range of software products but also kitschy giveaways, such as keychains and thermal mugs.
