After reading some posts I came across this article http://antiguaspeaks.com/news/?p=2947. It's so strange why slysoft are keep tight lipped at what is quite frankly an appalling way to treat customers. Why advertise an end to a life time license service and then after a month and a half still have it available? Not only that, the way they went about advertising it and now all of a sudden keeping quite is very suspicious. After reading this article (see link above) it's beggining to make sense. I'm getting the impression they're trying to get all the money they can because they have a very serious court case looming. With film makers and studios going on and on about copyright theft more and more, how long do slysoft expect people are just going to continue letting them carrying making their "back up" software and get away with it. I personally think it's a very good software and here lies the rub. I want to share this thought with everyone just like slysoft very kindly shared their thoughts with me and in public about what would happen if I missed the "deadline". I'm personally starting to think that Anydvd's days are number which is why they did what they did and are doing what they're doing - keeping silent.
