This week software maker SlySoft, known for its popular Blu-Ray software AnyDVD, shut down citing legal troubles. Sources from several well-known pirate groups inform TorrentFreak that the victory is a potential disaster that may delay future Blu-ray rips by months.
After having fought pressure from Hollywood for over a decade, SlySoft threw in the towel earlier this week.
The company shut down its main website at Slysoft.com and ceased to provide new updates to its popular Blu-Ray ripping tool AnyDVD. An announcement posted in the forums suggests that the decision is part of a deal.
“We were not allowed to respond to any request nor to post any statement, but now it is official: SlySoft has been shut down after almost 13 years,” SlySoft’s Tom announced.
