DVD jukebox company Kaleidescape has prevailed in its court case against the DVD Copy Control Association (DVD CCA).
While the trial was originally thought to test the boundaries of "fair use," , Judge Leslie C. Nichols of the Santa Clara Superior Court merely ruled that the company had met its obligations to the CCA under its license agreemnet.
The judge also noted Kaleidescape's good faith efforts to satisfy the contract, the company said.
"Kaleidescape has been operating in the shadow of the DVD CCA's allegations for over three years," said Michael Malcolm, founder, chairman and chief executive of Kaleidescape, in a statement. "We are gratified that after hearing all of the evidence, the Judge has completely vindicated our position."
