    It seems that every day, one company is suing another. Toshiba filed a complaint against DVD replicating firm EDD just a few days ago with a German Regional Court, claiming that the EDD had not properly licensed equipment with Toshiba or the DVD6C to run their business. Now, Toshiba has decided to sue, asking for EDD to cease and desist all sales of their services, and to give an unspecified amount of money to Toshiba as reparations.

    DVD copying firm EDD has not responded to the lawsuit yet.

    No one company is ever satisfied.

    what do they mean by dvd duplicating? like the duplicate the movies? and if so why would they need to buy a license, shouldn't that be covered by the company that they're duplicating for?

    Seems they essentially mean anything with the DVD name on it.

    If I invented some method of doing business, and some company copied it and illegally made money from it, I'd be pissed as well. At least ask me before hand, you dick!
