    Just went to site this message posted.
    Due to recent regulatory requirements we have had to cease all activities relating to SlySoft Inc.
    We wish to thank our loyal customers/clients for their patronage over the years.
    Sucks since I'm in the trial period and now can't buy the programs

    Well for those that paid for the LTL they should be lucky if they download all the version then they are in good shape. Just make sure not to delete your Slysoft software saves. But that statement is ironic in itself it never says the software development was end though. So a different name will come along to take the lead is most likely here if that is the case. Be pretty bad if they were to leave all together here. This is why I told alot of trial period users to buy a LTL it cost more but will be worth it and now it looks like that was cautionary tale that should've been listened to. There most likely will be a mirror coming and one can get the one registered to them to download and use but those not with LTL will have a harder time using the software. And probably hacks of Slysoft software so they can use them as well this is most likely coming if Slysoft doesn't return.

    Very sad day indeed. I hope they find a way to resurrect the company. As a software developer myself, I know I'd be pissed to not be able to further improve upon a product I'm responsible for developing.

    This sounds like the site is closing down for good! Got this message trying to get on with Chrome. This sounds really bad!

    Doesn't sound anything like it. All it says is they had to stop slysoft. It says nothing about being for good. Have hope, I do. As far as that message goes, it's not browser related and has been posted a few times now. The only thing we can do right now is not panic or jump to conclusions and hope they'll release some statement and how this event affects the decryption functionalities of anydvd. And I can't believe I have to say this, but for the moment there are 'other solutions' to fill the temporary gap.

    I hope you are right. This would be a major loss to many thousands. Maybe a petition can be started or we can write to our representatives. This really stinks! Any DVD was and is really great and useful software.
    Don't these people in Hollywood (or who ever is to blame) have kids or teenagers that will damage your expensive original discs! Are we supposed to buy two copies of every movie, just to keep one in working condition? I hope that Slysoft can beat them in court and rise again like the Phoenix! We have the right to make a backup of a purchased movie, for our own use, and to protect our investment. Hopefully these people will ruin themselves because of their endless overreaching and greed!

    I guess the only positive is Slysoft seems to have pulled the website themselves, so they still seem to have control over their domains/servers at least.
    Hopefully this means they are just complying with forced requirements until they can get something sorted out.

    Sad to see though :cry:

    Tom's thread seems rather definite, Slysoft is officially closed.

    What are the other solutions except DVDfab?

    Oh Ch3vr0n I presume you posted prior to Tom's post but I can't see any room for hope unless someone from SlySoft is able to contradict Tom. I am surprised that SlySoft did not have a contingency plan because it is pretty hard to introduce recent regulatory requirements overnight. I would like to say thankyou to the SlySoft staff for their help and support and I include the forum volunteers in my gratitude. I hope Elaborate Bytes are able to advise on the future development of their products.

    It would be nice if the source code for the slysoft products could be put out as open source. The movie studios and government cant stop it then if the software becomes open source. If slysoft never has any plan to ever sell these products again, why not put out a torrent on the torrent sites with the source code for the products and let the open source community start to put out updates and new releases???
