[TF] Popular Blu-Ray Ripping Software Shuts Down Following Legal Pressure - Page 8

Heck, they even make devices that transfer vinyl to CD. It would be like making them illegal because someone might pirate the CD.

What is allowed depends on your jurisdiction. In Australia, for example, we have specific exemptions for some copyright "violations". I believe it may be OK to convert a vinyl because it's analog. A DVD is digital and so can't be format shifted. A CD can also be space shifted for playback on a personal MP3 player.

Oh no! This is huge news actually.....

Sad to see them go. Software also won't work without access to their servers disc decryption keys.

RIP pirates.

No, you CANNOT block updates manually or automatically. The option doesn't exist to block updates.

You can circumvent updates by staying in offline mode. You can not block them though.

Backup copies are nice.

It's nice turning your HTPC into a BluRay jukebox just with files instead of constantly changing BluRays in a BluRay player.

If I can't rip content I paid for onto my Plex/XBMC server for easier watching, then I will just not watch movies/tv shows anymore. Streaming is not a solution, lot of ISPs throttle it, and the quality is always not so great compared to physical media.. Until they offer Atmos in lossless with the same video bitrates as a disc, it just looks and sounds awful in comparison.

Between the two companies, this is like a $500 loss to me because I owned both company's expensive software.. What a joke, there should be nothing wrong with ripping media you paid for.

These companies just want to get out of the business due to pressure, and I'm sure MakeMKV will be the next one to go.

Exactly, buy a disc, rip it to HTPC. stream it to any TV/device in the house in full BD quality. No disc swapping needed. When we're expected to pay $20-$30 for a new movie, we should be allowed to do whatever we want it outside of making copies to give to others. There should be nothing wrong about making copies for yourself for easier viewing.

The fact is, somebody will give us the ability to rip 4K, and when they do, that's where I will move.

I like the convenience of an HTPC as a jukebox. I do not share movies. For every movie in my digital library, I have a nearly pristine disc (only inserted into a drive once). I will often rent a disc and if the movie is of a quality I desire in my library, I purchase a copy of the disc and add it to my library.

I am the type of consumer these movie theaters want except for one thing, I like convenience, and they do not.

International economic law is better than war.

Help a country out. Work to lower their energy costs, simulate their economy by easing trade expenses, pay their defense expenses. Help their people flourish.

Then, invite them to enforce your copyright and patent laws. Invite them to help in the fight against terrorism by destroying their civil liberties. Invite them to participate in OPEC so they can let us dictate the price of their energy.

Copyright law isn't something for a mere entrepreneuring programmer to protest, wherever they live. Don't make products that can be used, in any way, for copyright infringement. It's a bad idea.
