Are DVD Decrypters Banned
Are DVD Decrypters Banned –
I was just wondering if DVD Decrypters are banned in the United States. I got a virus on my computer about two months ago and we had to delete everything on our computer. I heard a rumor that they are banned.
Any info on this matter anyone it would be appreciated. Thanks
Where did you hear this? It's not banned.
Its on afterdawn.com In November, 2001 The Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York ruled that distributing tools that allow users to decrypt CSS copy protection scheme found on DVD-Video discs, is illegal.
As our site is operated from various countries and is not aimed to any particular country and/or area of the world, we don't feel it is necessary for us to remove such tools from our site.
Anyway, to avoid legal problems with U.S. administration, we have to restrict our software archive so that users from United States or from any of its territories are not allowed to download these tools.
The tool that you're now about to download is one of those that fall under this category and therefor if you're U.S. resident, you are not allowed to download this software.
This is also true for users from other countries than United States -- if you know for sure that your country has laws that prevent you from copying your own movies for your own personal use, you are not allowed to download this tool.
Do you live in United States, Germany or in any other country that has laws against distributing DeCSS or similiar tools? when you go to download the Decrypter it says:
lol, who cares?
As long as they have it availible on the internet for you it's fine.
ok i belive that came abou tafter DVD COPY X PLATINUM The end judgemet was that you cant have a burner and decrpyer in the same program with one button... MEaning that you cant have a program where you hit on button and it Decypts Shrinks Encodes and Burns with one touch.....I believe
