RealNetworks can't sell a program that copies DVDs to computer hard disks because it may violate copyright laws, a federal judge said.

The Motion Picture Assn. of America, which contends the Seattle company's RealDVD program will facilitate piracy, persuaded U.S. District Judge Marilyn Hall Patel to keep in place an Oct. 4 temporary restraining order. Patel said she would hold a hearing on whether the product violates federal copyright laws.
