The RealNetworks legal battle against top Hollywood studios is going to expand.  The lawsuit revolves around DVD-ripping software that Real introduced several years ago, RealDVD, and the studios’ complaint that it allowed consumers to rent, rip and return DVDs without paying full price for them.

RealNetworks has just asked the court to allow an amendment to their complaint against the studio which would include claims of antitrust violations.  RealNetworks claims that several companies involved in the suit have joined boycotts against Real products and have refused outright to deal with the company.  This counterclaim comes after the studios filed the initial suit against RealNetworks.
