Well, actually since it was a chinese company we kind of expected them to keep thumbing their nose at the MPAA and the US legal system -- what else would you expect from a country that embraces piracy as a major pillar of their economy.
Well then track them down and ask for a refund!

The latest version of DVD Fab is out and is version 9.1.5.2

More importantly: the above IP address still works for the EU download. Just substitute 9152 for 9150.

This appears to be the doorway for licensed users to get the EU version with BD decryption.

Sorry, I don't understand what you are trying to do.
If you have a lifetime license code you should be able to just plug it into the EU version and go from there.

Nothing has changed with respect to activating the program. You can download your key from DVDFab. Activation works the same which ever version of the program you install. In fact, you can even have both versions installed and running.(they install to different locations)

But with latest release I have to have a secondary method to decrypt (unless I find EU version)? Does AnyDVD HD decryption work with DVDfab v9150? Sorry for the dumb questions. Hate to spend more money but really want to have full 1:1 archive copy of the full bdmv folder structure which I can then either make 1:1 ISO or main movie ISO (depending on title if I want special features or not.

You quoted my post above in which I gave you the IP address for the latest EU version of 9.1.5.2. Why don't you download that, install it to its own folder and make sure it works for you the way you want it to. You can install multiple versions of DVD Fab in separate folders and run them separately. I never update a version but install it separately until I am convinced it does what I want -- then I simply delete the folder of the one I don't want any more. I have had as many as 4 versions of DVD Fab installed at once and tested all four of them to rip the same disk.

I will try that on my new pc after I get it together. No issues at all you've found compared to previous US release? As much as a headache latest news is, I love being done in a few clicks to rip and enjoy being discless. First rip on my new system will be all the tv bd's I have, so annoying to change discs.

Thanks for your help! Hopefully I will have no problems activating.

If you download from a European IP address you get the rest-of-the-world version which is the full version including BD decryption -- what we used to get before the blockade.
thank you for the reply. I have downloaded the EU version and it is working as expected!

Old news, but it still shows exactly how the Studios, NATO(North America Theater's Owners Association) and the DVD CCA, and many more, are very active towards piracy and copyright and they are not afraid to prosecute. That should make it very relative news.

"worked as expected"

No doubt. Buggy with Nvidia's latest drivers. At least they've acknowledged it and are attempting to fix it. But now with the logistics involved in d/l full versions each time a full versions is released but buggy adds to the annoyance of having to wait for another "released" version.

Well not if you are going to be dumb like the people in the articles you cite and set up a camera in a theater or sell pirated copies on the street. People here are not advocating those sorts of activities at all. They are using tools on legally purchased media to be able to play it in the manner of their choosing -- in the privacy of their homes.

Except what you are doing with copies and what your intentions are even if perfectly legit may mean absolutely nothing to Hollywood.

I see it there way, my way, and your way.

I have a huge collection of ripped movies on my HTPC. Over 500 titles in formats from CD, DVD, HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. I am at the cross road on deleting all of them. I have the cases, the disks, and the receipts of purchase for everyone of them. But the DVD CCA and MPAA are pushing very hard to make this illegal. Yes it has a lot to do with digital downloads such as Ultraviolet. Hollywood's stance is, why rip a disk when we give you Ultraviolet or other digital means to watch. There is a lot of Judges and Jury's buying that ideal.

Those "Legally" purchased tools is what those "fools" are using to get there counterfeit copies to sell.

Hector Xavier Monsegur thought other hackers were dumb to. Didn't do him any better for it.

None of those people were prosecuted for breaking DRM. They were prosecuted for manufacturing and selling pirated movies.

It's already illegal to remove the encryption so you already broke the law. The man is coming to get you now that you've openly admitted it in a public forum.

I won't argue your feelings. Whatever puts you in your personal comfort zone is the right course of action for you. If that means clearing your server then go for it.

I am in my comfort zone. My profile is below the radar. I'm not public in any way and I don't advocate piracy. I don't sell copies, I don't give away copies. I don't upload or offer them for download via peer network or torrents and neither do I download. The disks come into my private residence and never leave. I have little reason to suspect the FBI, MPAA or HSI will be knocking on my door because of my private video use practices.

Dunno what your links are supposed to show but so far there's been no public mention of anyone being prosecuted for ripping stuff they already bought EVER. This kinda fearmongering is almost as pathetic as the industries desperate attempts to frame the whole debate as an issue of people being "uneducated" about copyright. Yeah, right.
