U.S. Court Orders Seizure of “DVD Ripping” Software Domains, Servers and Funds: TorrentFreak

TorrentFreak is reporting “a New York federal court has granted the seizure of several domain names, bank funds and social media accounts belonging to DVD ripping software company DVDFab.”The report continues that “Judge Broderick ruled in favour of AACS, the licensing outfit founder by Warner Bros, Disney, Microsoft, Intel and others.””In an effort to limit the availability of so-called DVD ripping software, AACS has sued the company behind the popular DVD ripping software DVDFab.”TorrentFreak notes “the broad injunction is unique in its scope, ordering several domain registrars to disable all domains associated with the DVDFab group. This includes DVDFab.com, DVDFab.net, DVDidle.com, 3d-videoconverters.com, 3dBluRay-ripper.com, Blu-Ray-ripper.us, Blu-Ray-Software.us, BluRayripper.jp, BluRaysbs3d.com, BluRaysoft.jp, CopyBiuRay.us, DVDFab.jp, DVDFab9.com and DVDvideosoft.jp.””At the time of writing none of the above domains can be reached.”The ruling is clearly aimed at disabling all aspects of DVFab’s business as their “hosting providers are also ordered to stop servicing the company, as are other online services including Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Whether AACS has asked for the closure of DVDFab’s social media accounts is unclear, as they remain active for now.””Adding to DVDFab’s troubles, Judge Broderick also ordered several banks and payment providers to freeze or stop processing the company’s funds. This includes PayPal, Amazon Payments, Visa and MasterCard.”For more details on the injunction, see the original TorrentFreak article at torrentfreak.com/u-s-court-orders-seizure-dvdfab-domain-names-funds-140310.
