French court rules in favor of DVD copying

A French court has ruled that adding anti-copying mechanisms to a DVD violates the rights consumers have to make private copies of media that they?ve bought and paid for.

Reportedly the court has given the company that released the film in question one month to provide the guy who sued them with an unprotected DVD; it?s not entirely clear whether this ruling applies to every DVD sold in France or just that one copy of Mulholland Drive this guy was trying to dub. Either way, expect the film industry to throw its entire weight behind getting this ruling overturned.
