DVD Decrypter to be removed (http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/7056.cfm)

Macrovision Corporation recently acquired the intellectual property rights in all versions of DVD Decrypter from its author, Lightning UK!. As the current owner of the intellectual property rights in DVD Decrypter Macrovision has contacted us to inform that "any license granted by Lightning UK! to AfterDawn for the distribution of any version of the Software [DVD Decrypter] is hereby terminated with immediate effect."

Even though the means used to acquire the rights to DVD Decrypter (http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/6501.cfm) bore probably more resemblance to the common methods of the entertainment industry, we have no reason to object the request made by Macrovision. They do, in any case, own the rights to the software, and are entitled to enforce any policy they see fit.

The DVD Decrypter (http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd_rippers/dvd_decrypter.cfm) install package will be removed from our servers by Sunday, November 27th, or as soon as it is technically possible.

After it's development was ceased in June DVD Decrypter has been surpassed by several other software, such as AnyDVD (http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd_rippers/anydvd.cfm) and DVDFab Decrypter (http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd_rippers/dvdfab_decrypter.cfm). One of the best features in DVD Decrypter was it's image burning engine, which allowed the burned disc to be verified against the image file. Luckily that feature is now available in Lightning UK!'s new software, ImgBurn.

You can always get it from the great library of your peers here:
