CloneCD Move to Slysoft.com –
OK, haven't been to elby site in a while, but just checked for an update to CloneCD, and the server was unavailable. So I hopped over to elby and W T F???!!!! Can no longer dupe CD's in Germany because of a new law enacted last week or so. Can't even sell it through Switzerland (where I got my first key like 4 years ago) because of trade agreements and such.
They've sold it to Slysoft, swo picked up elby's AnyDVD back in the summer. Don't know if any of you know about this company, but they are rather small still, and are in Antigua. The mirrored sites out there still have the trial version that can be downloaded--even saw the latest 4.2.02 version on a Czek site. Most sites that have the later 4.xx versions will probably be non-english speaking until this RIAA crap gets resolved--it's scaring everyone, especially after they persecuted that poor little 12 yr. old girl. No shame. It's gotten way out of hand--hope Verizon can stick it to them!
Anyway, Slysoft doesn't have any links for purchasing a key yet, but announcements have been made that they will be selling it via download only--no more retail CD's will be made. For those who are into warez, there are still key generators out there that will work on the older versions. A valid key will port to a newer version though, so you guys can probably get to v 4.xx. Slysoft will be revising the proggie and releasing a newer version and may change the registration code a bit. Existing CloneCD customers are supposed to have their one year of free updates honored. Otherwise, no further details are available as of yet.
Here's a link to the site so you guys can bookmark it:
Let's hope this gets worked out soon. It'd be a shame to see the best damn CD duping software disappear!
If it ain't broke don't try to fix it! But, hell if you can tweak that bastard just a little bit more....hehehe.
