Eric Sinrod, a FindLaw columnist, has some analysis of the recently filed lawsuit over "ripped" DVDs. According to the lawsuit that Paramount Pictures has filed against Load 'N Go Video, the company loads its customers' newly purchased DVDs on their newly purchased iPods. Paramount and other studios maintain that Load 'N Go doesn't have a license to perform this function. Load 'N Go's position, according to Sinrod, is likely to be that it's merely acting as a proxy for the consumers. Read Sinrod's dissection of the parties' positions here. Here's a link to the complaint.
