Seems like you are confused again.  This verdict was _for_ the
plaintiff, the copyright holder, not against it.

And nobody ever said that a copyright holder can ever claim ownership of
the media on which copies have been made by anybody else.  You have the
right to demand the copies getting removed.  Or, for write-once media,
for the copies getting destroyed.  But not for them to be handed over.

Nobody ever claimed that except perhaps gremlins in that washed-out mind
of yours.
