Popular Blu-Ray Ripping Software Shuts Down Following Legal Pressure

It looks like the people behind AnyDVD finally lost their battle with the entertainment industry. I still find it odd that, even though consumers have the right to copy a DVD for their own use, the tools to do so are outlawed.

The Antigua-based software company SlySoft has shut down its website and ceased sales of the popular Blu-ray ripping software AnyDVD. The action comes several days after a group of Hollywood studios and technology partners asked the U.S. Government to intervene.
