Court grants a temporary stay in 321 Studios' NY case The district court in New York issued a temporary stay of the premilimany injunction on Friday for 321 Studios in their legal case against movie studios Paramount and Fox.
321 Studios asked for immediate temporary stay after the district court ruling in New York in last week's Wednesday and the Judge Richard Owen granted that to them on Friday. Stay means that the New York court order to stop selling "ripper-equipped" versions of 321 Studios' DVD X Copy products is postponed and from New York court's point of view 321 Studios can continue to sell their products equipped with the part that allows circumventing the copy protection found on DVD-Video discs.

Unfortunately the decision doesn't really change anything, since the other district court decision in San Fransisco still restricts 321 Studios from selling their products equipped with the ripper. San Fransisco court also rejected 321 Studios' earlier request for temporary stay of the preliminary injunction.

Despite the San Fransisco's status, 321 Studios has stated that they will apply for a permanent stay in New York on March 15th.
