Like many others I bought a lifetime AnyDVD license. AnyDVD worked very well and I like the idea of buying a DVD and copying the movie and selling the DVD to get 3/4 of what I paid for it. All the movies I copied work to this day. Flawlessly. The problem came when I switched computers and I would have to request another key. Then AnyDVD disappeared. The rumor was AnyDVD went out of business because the movie industry threatened lawsuits. One person went to prison for copying too many movies. I saved all the receipts and the key so I can prove I bought a lifetime license.
