Well, that may apply to the US, but I think they’ll find it hard to enforce in the rest of the world, especially China, from where Fab originates.

That e-mail is from over a year ago, I wouldn’t take it very seriously LOL.:disagree: I bet the software industry was a little slow in 2007 and they put that out so everyone would rush to buy the software.:wink:

[/quote]So they consider an article that was written [B]one year ago[/B] (!) as NEWS. :rolleyes:
Not really a reliable source. :disagree:

Looks to me like they are selling the “exclusive report”. It has been illegal to sell (but not to own) software or hardware like this in the US for some time.

I wouldn’t worry too much about the article - it’s pretty old for one and it’s really just an advertisement to entice (or frighten) you to buy the software being touted - [B]TODAY[/B].

That said, I think that because of regulations that the article alludes to (rules which may exist now or in the future and may differ from country to country) is why you actually buy DVDFab from dvdfab.[B]net[/B], not dvdfab.[B]com[/B]. The download on dvdfab.net does not contain CSS decryption. By happy coincidence, the reg key you get for the non-CSS version of DVDFab also unlocks the version of DVDFab that you download from dvdfab.com, which does perform decryption.

So the regulations mentioned have had an effect on the DVD ripping market (another example is that the corporate ownership of another generally well regarded DVD protection remover has moved to a country with a friendlier legal climate), but the market has not been shut down.

This would best be catagorized as history & not news. But then again, isn’t 99% of all news actually history if you think about it?


#10

Yep most news is history and so will this thread be, if anymore of it is posted.:iagree: Its spam .:cool:


#11

My heart skipped a beat. Being one of us that purchased Dvd X Copy before the judge’s ruling, this got my attention real quick. Glad it is old news.

Ha Ha Ha…

Oh yes, I am really Scared…:kiss:

They can stop one, they can’t stop all.

I love DVDFAB and I won’t even worry about it.

Actually, I remembered ages ago when BETAMEX and VHS came out with the same RULES about copying…But consumers could not careless.

Moreover, the movie industry should be very pleased that we are buying their product and making copies… (albeit for ourselves not commerical gains).

Anyway, what do I know, I am a Sea Monster…

well alan, i just got the damn thing today (no offense to you), i do not really think it will crush our beloved dvdfab, but i thought i would put this out there, i guess these folks are trying to drum up business!!

another thing i heard on the evening news a few weeks ago was that there was a japanesse company that has come out with a supposed uncopyable disc, my wife told me that she heard this on the news, and i have not heard anything more about it, everything is surrountable i believe.
hope everything remains the same!

I think there is no point being so paranoid. If one day DVD copy is no more available, I am sure smart folks will come out with something else.

Few months back when SONY won the Blu_Ray wars, it was mentioned that BLU-RAY cannot be ripped, however, some company has came out with the ability to ripped them…it is matter of time.

Looking back, I remembered when DVD players had regional codes, now you can hardly see any manufacturer obeying regional codes. FYI, my SONY Hi-Fi Theatre System can play movies from ALL regions…and I did not make any modifications to the player.

The movie industries are SMART but not STUPID. They will find ways to RESTRICT copying but generally, they will not BARRED movie copying. And even if they restrict, manufacturer will “follow” consumers demands…Look at what happen to BETAMAX. (they restrict copying) and they Fail.

Who knows, maybe some one will come up with the ability to use SD or flash memory on TV or player to view HI-FI movies … so we do not need to RIP movies, we can just COPY and PASTE from one source to the other and live happily ever after.
