A New York federal court has granted the seizure of several domain names, bank funds and social media accounts belonging to DVD ripping software company DVDFab. Judge Broderick ruled in favor of AACS, the licensing outfit founder by Warner Bros, Disney, Microsoft, Intel and others.
dvdfablogoAACS, the decryption licensing outfit founded by a group of movie studios and technology partners including Warner Bros, Disney, Microsoft and Intel, has launched a crackdown on DRM-circumvention software.
In an effort to limit the availability of so-called DVD ripping software, AACS has sued the company behind the popular DVD ripping software DVDFab.
Under U.S. law its forbidden to distribute software with the primary intention of circumventing copyright protection. In its complaint, AACS accuses the DVDFab Group of violating the DMCAs anti-circumvention clause by selling tools that can bypass their DVD encryption.
The DVDFab Group openly touts these illegal circumvention attributes of the DVDFab Software on the DVDFab Websites, advertising that, among other things, its software products remove all Blu-ray copy protections, and can remove all known AACS copy protections, AACS writes in its complaint.
To stop the Chinese-based DVDFab from distributing its software in public, AACS moved for a preliminary injunction. After DVDFab failed to respond in court the request was granted by New York Federal Judge Vernon Broderick. TF has obtained a copy of the order.
The broad injunction is unique in its scope, ordering several domain registrars to disable all domains associated with the DVDFab group. This includes DVDFab.com, DVDFab.net, DVDidle.com, 3d-videoconverters.com, 3dBluRay-ripper.com, Blu-Ray-ripper.us, Blu-Ray-Software.us, BluRayripper.jp, BluRaysbs3d.com, BluRaysoft.jp, CopyBiuRay.us, DVDFab.jp, DVDFab9.com and DVDvideosoft.jp.
At the time of writing none of the above domains can be reached.
Besides the domain names, DVDFabs hosting providers are also ordered to stop servicing the company, as are other online services including Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Whether AACS has asked for the closure of DVDFabs social media accounts is unclear, as they remain active for now.
Adding to DVDFabs troubles, Judge Broderick also ordered several banks and payment providers to freeze or stop processing the companys funds. This includes PayPal, Amazon Payments, Visa and MasterCard.
In summary, the order grants AACS the power to completely wipe all traces of DVDFab from the Internet, and make it hard for the company to resurface elsewhere. At least, that was the plan.
The Chinese software vendor is not giving up easily, and is already making a comeback.
Existing bookmarks for either site may not work from some locations, so temporary sites for both are being prepared and will be online shortly, a company spokesman says, pointing users to dvdfab.jp.
Quite how long this domain and associated payment services can remain functional remains to be seen.
In any case, AACS and the movie industry will be encouraged by this broad injunction, and it wouldnt be a big surprise if we see this strategy being repeated against other piracy-related targets in the near future.
have been using the Slysoft suite . Anydvd and clone dvd for a decade . Pretty foolproof as they are constantly updating new movie releases . They are bit perfect as long as you use a large enough blank disc . 75% OF MOVIES CAN BE BURNED ON A STANDARD DVR- disc . dual layer for the three hour movies is necessary .
