Default RealNetworks appeals to public in RealDVD fight

"We have been forced by legal action to at least temporarily halt the sale of RealDVD by Hollywood's largest movie studios," RealNetworks said in a post on it's site. "You shouldn't be caught in the middle, and we apologize that you are. As a thank you for your patience we will upgrade your trial to a fully licensed copy, free of charge, if we are legally allowed to resume distribution of RealDVD."

-- snip --

"Be clear about what's at stake: "Your "fair use" rights to make a copy of DVDs that you own," the company wrote. "If Hollywood gets its way, they will control your rights and sell them back to you by requiring you to purchase the same DVD twice if you want a fair-use personal copy."

A call to action by Real Networks. They may have a chance to win this thing actually.
