ZDNet senior editor Sam Diaz offers his views on the recent lawsuits filed by the movie industry against Real Networks for its new RealDVD software. The movie studios are suing Real Networks alleging the software violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Diaz says consumers should be able to enjoy the content they've purchased and the software is no different than Apple's iTunes, as it relates to copyright.
