Get DVDFab Alternatives, Keep Away from DVDFab Lawsuit
DVDFab is a powerful program that includes tools for burning discs, creating disc copies, converting videos, ripping discs, etc. DVDFab comes with an graphical user interface that displays four tabs: Copy, Ripper, Converter, and Creator. By clicking on any of them you get access to advanced tools that efficiently handle both tasks related to DVDs and Blu-ray discs. But, you need to pay for the each function. If you only pay for DVD Copy, then you don’t convert DVD to digital files and copy Blu-ray. And you can look at the price of each DVDFab feature. It is TOO EXPENSIVE.
What’s more, dvdfab.com was blocked because it is seized by the AACS-LA due to an injuction of an US court. The AACS-LA is after DVDFab because the company offer(s)(ed) software that circumvents the copy protection on Blu-ray discs licensed by the AACS-LA. Now, DVDFab is currently reachable through their Japanese URL: http://en.dvdfab.jp and Chinese URL: http://cn.dvdfab.cn/
Fortunately some companies haven’t been sued by the AACS-LA yet or are nevertheless still capable to offer this kind of software for download and/or sale. Here’s a list of software that’s still available and is able to decrypt DVD and Blu-ray discs enabling you to make backups of your favorite movies.
Disclaimer: We do not condone piracy. Circumvention of copy protections might be illegal in your country. Only use this software to create backups of discs you own.
