Big trial gets underway on Friday (4.24) in San Francisco about the DVD-ripping program from RealNetworks called RealDVD.  Hollywood is not too pleased with the $30 program which allows you to rip and save unlimited number of DVD's to a PC.

The program is unavailable, but we had an opportunity to tape an interview and demo  with RealNetwork's Jeff Chasen in September. So you can see how it works.

Brad Stone writes about the trial in The New York Times.
