  • A Federal Judge has decided that the fairy tales of the movie industry (as enumerated in the Digital Millstone Granola* Act) trump fair use and the rights of the consumer, don't get me started. The bottom line is that 321 Studios is not shipping any more copies of DVD-X-Copy and Fry's probably shouldn't be selling them. C-Net article and links
    (* Sounds like Granola, starts with C and wouldn't get past your spam filter)
  • DVD-X-copy in stock at Fry's! - at least for now!
  • $40 rebate on the Platinum version until 03/04 - read rebate offer before you buy at the Outpost link above. The Platinum Version also comes with the DVD repair program "free".
