DVD biz steps up action against DeCSS


"..The movie industry this week stepped up its efforts to stem the spread of DeCSS, a utility that allows files stored on DVDs to be copied to PC hard drives, with a barrage of legal threats against Web sites offering the software. The move, which targets 72 US-based DeCSS-hosting sites follows actions launched in Europe earlier this month against other Web sites from which the utility could be downloaded.

The US suit was filed on Monday by the DVD Copy Control Association (DCCA), a body that appears to have been formed specifically to act against the distribution of DeCSS. Previous anti-DeCSS actions have been made on behalf of the Motion Picture Association of America. The latest suit demands the removal of DeCSS from the named sites, but the DCCA is also seeking a broader restraint to prevent sites from linking to servers on which the utility is stored.."
