Ch3vr0n, I was replying to Xercus's comments about pirating. I already know all the things your saying about it. Of course My Clone DVD will stop working as well.
Sorry, but I feel let down and am being coerced into paying money I don't have to keep Any DVD. I'm sure there was some financial tie up between Elby and Slysoft, I can't see anything being sold that way without money changing hands.
A well known Chinese company went through hell with the AACS LA and as far as I know no one lost their lifetime licence. It's also a matter of trust now, how do I know I won't be wasting my money. I really hope they do make a go of it, but I cannot help financially, I just cannot afford to.
The other problem here is the rapid slowdown of backing up movies, what's the point when so many streaming services are available and second hand DVDs and BDs are being sold for less than the postage costs. So eventually all I can see is Any DVD being used for pirating copyrighted movies instead of backing up. I guess I will get burned for saying all this, sorry, but that's how I feel about it.
