MPAA strikes again - No more DVD Decryptor

Post by Bakadeshi » Sun Jun 19, 2005 9:25 pm

The Author was served with a cease and Desist order, so Keep whatever versions you have now, as there won't be any new releases, unless someone else brave enough desides to take over it (which has happened in the past)

Article here:

Saddening news, as that was THE ripper that always worked the best for me for my projects.

Awell, hopefully something as good or better will eventually come around by the time this becomes outdated.

Might also want to disable the new version alert if you have it on. The new owner of their domain may collect IP addresses for not-so-friendly purposes.

Oh by the way, doom9 seems to have confirmed that it wasn't the MPAA's doing. Seems like the "company" mentioned was Macrovision.

This is why I have a firewall block all access for certain programs :P

I saw this news about a week and a half ago. Quite saddening...

I'm sure there will be further means of encryption along the road, which might make the current version obsolete.

On the other hand, one way or another, there will be new decrypters I think.

Anyways, an unfortunate scenario. Suppose that's going to get taken out of AMVapp now, too :|
The Birds are using humanity in order to throw something terrifying at this green pig. And then what happens to us all later, that’s simply not important to them…

No mater how hard they try, finding a program as popular as dvd decrypter will never be harder than a quick google.

Bingo, just like most free/shareware just keep whatever free version you have, if it works with little problems then why update it at all?

Yeah but I'm inconvenient and always relied on getting it from the actual site everytime.

Guess I'll just leave it on my 2nd hard drive.

Just use DVD43 Free. Then use it with the Import DVD function most video editors have to use for bringing in DVD camcorder and recorder disks. Or even if they end up locking the decrypt function in Decrypter, DVD43 Free will just undo it.
