I agree that they deserve some consideration. But I also agree it's bad software. It's expensive, it's got loathsome product activation, it's filled to the brim with bugs, and it's basically unnecessary. DVDxCopy can't do anything that DVD Decryptor and IFOEdit can't. These are the only tools I use and I have YET to find a DVD, including episodic that I could not back up. Plus I can copy my copies, remove FBI warnings, remove prohibited operations (like how Warner Brothers doesn't like to let you switch audio tracks with the audio button on your remote). Let's face it, I'm glad they're fighting the MPAA but the software is weak and overpriced.
