We reported several days ago that tools had been released to allow the ripping of DVD-Audio using WinDVD 5, 6 or 7. It didn't take long for the legal threats to pour in which forced Rarewares publisher Roberto to remove the tools. Here is his post from a doom9 thread...
...and it's gone
I got a phone call from a big local lawyer office (no fake, I checked the caller ID and the phone number really belongs to a lawyer office). They have been hired to make me stop distributing the DVD-A tools. It was a reasonably big talk, but I can summarize it with
They: we are giving you two choices, either you remove all references to those tools from your site now, or we'll have to take you to court.
Me: I'm already removing!
They: Thank-you for your cooperation.
Oh, well. It's been fun. I'm amazed at how well it spread in these two days (!), and I'm sure from now on you'll be able to find those tools in countless mirrors, p2p and the like.
The removal of the tools won't really help in any way as they have already spread around the net.
