Also, they have 20% off until New Year's Eve.
Nety: The 20% off does not include upgrades though
Bad timing just when everyone is tight on money they go and force you to spend more
I buy DVDs. Not many now that I have an iTunes Store US account, but still buy some. If I wanted to make backup copies I would never "rip" but instead create an ISO. It uses a lot more space, no doubt, but preserves the original DVD...

One fitty for a very useful piece of software which promises life time updates (providing you by it before 1 Jan 2009)? What's theft about that?
I purchased AnyDVD HD a few months ago (albeit at a more favourable exchange rate) and have never looked back since. Not sure why you think their pricing is 'theft' given what it offers.
Satch: Now downloading a pirated version...there's your definition of theft.
Just how much would you expect to pay for software like that?
Nety: You missed that it removes the prohibited user operations flag.. you know the stuff. That "ad" that tells you not to pirate the DVD/BD even though the only reason you are watching the "ad" it at all is because you are have NOT pirated the thing!! For me that is one of the big plus's with AnyDVD. Being able to skip past rubbish that should never have been forced on you in the first place.
AnyDVD HD has been updated 3 times this month so I would suggest it is updated more often then the majority of smaller apps. However annoyingly it does not update itself. You have to download the new version and install over the top.
Also one problem with the smaller apps is often they are supported by one person (whoever wrote it). If they loose interest or stop support for some other personal reason then the app often dies.
