IPods pre-loaded with video tread legal gray zone
A tiny Massachusetts company named TVMyPod is selling iPods that come with movies and TV programs already loaded on them, a practice that raises questions of legality as it addresses consumer demand for convenience and portability.
DVDs have copy protection on them, however, and under the terms of the
Digital Millennium Copyright Act it is illegal to bypass that technology. Raghavan said his company's process does not involve decryption.
He added that moving the content onto the device is a one-way transfer, which since the purchaser gets both the original and the copy is legal under the fair use provisions of the U.S. Copyright Act.
"It's kind of an obsolete law since Congress was not taking into consideration portability," Raghavan said. "These players are exploding on the market, but the legality of it can sometimes be in a gray area."
