AnyDVD is Spyware?

I just read a posting in a newsgroup in which some guy claims that the new version of AnyDVD ‘phones home’.

The posting is already on Google:

I suppose that’s paranoid crap, or does anyone experience the same?

AnyDVD is not spyware,

the new version of AnyDVD ‘phones home’

Is a selectable feature where one can enable AnyDVD to check for a new version or not.

As mentioned, it is a user selectable feature, the only reason I can see for people not enabling it, is if they have slightly dubious versions of the app :frowning:

DON’T ANSWER! OR DISGUISE YOUR VOICE! lol

or like me they don’t want the connection controlled by a piece of software, I hate apps that dial out and am glad that AnyDVD has the option to disable this.
