Macrovision Forces Removal of DVD Decrypter

Last June the DVD Decrypter author was forced to quit development of its popular software. Now, Macrovision urges websites not to host the downloadable installation package of DVD Decrypter on their servers.

The DVD Decrypter is a tool used to strip the contents of copy protected DVDs. It uses the DeCSS engine to defeat the Content Scrambling System that protects DVDs.

The user-friendly interface and of DVD Decrypter as well as its simple operation and its build-in recording engine had made it very popular among users.

Last June copyright holders had forced the author of the UK programmer of DVD Decrypter to stop the development of the software.

"Ok so it has taken a while (almost 2 years), but eventually 'a certain company' has decided they don't like what I'm doing (circumventing their protection) and have come at me like a pack of wolves," the developer had said.

The 'certain company' turned out to be Macrovision, a firm that specialized in developing DRM software. The company recently acquired the intellectual property rights in all versions of DVD Decrypter from its author. As the current owner of the intellectual property rights in DVD Decrypter Macrovision Macrovision yesterday forced website to remove DVD Decrypted from its download section. It is possible that Macrovision could force any website that hosts DVD Decrypter to remove it from its servers.
