Texas DVD Codebreaker Can”t Be Sued In California

Sponsored by:

California´s highest court says a group licensing DVD encryption software cannot use California´s courts to sue a Texas man for posting on the Internet the codes to break such software.

The California-based DVD Copy Control Association licenses its software to film studios to block the illegal copying of DVD movies. A Dallas man posted codes online that allow users to break the software and copy encrypted DVDs.

The California Supreme Court today said the Morgan Hill-based association must sue Matthew Pavlovich for trade secret infringement in his home state of Texas, or Indiana — where he originally posted the code.

The court will soon rule on whether posting encryption software is protected speech.
