MPAA to support Disney in movie trailer case

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 26 Jul 2001 2:29

Buena Vista, a Disney -owned movie studio, asked yesterday from federal judge to give a permission for the MPAA to file "friend of the court" brief on its behalf.
Buena Vista is asking a court to grant an injunction that would prevent Video Pipeline to stream company's trailers to various web retailers. Buena Vista sued Video Pipeline in June and case has raised more than few eyebrows, because traditionally movie trailers are considered as advertisements and wide distribution of advertisement is normally considered to be a good thing for the movie.
