Torrentfreak.com features a breaking story that involves a US court order seizure of “DVD Ripping” domain names. “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 Advanced Access Content System LA (AACS LA), a consortium that includes Disney, Intel, Microsoft, Panasonic, Warner Bros., IBM, Toshiba and Sony, has sued the company behind the popular DVD ripping software DVDFab.
The injunction orders 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 this time a lot of these domain names have a “SERVER HOLD” status and are not resolving. DVDFab.com is registered with hichina.com that is owned by alibaba.com.
DVDFab has setup a temporary domain name taht is still working at this time: dvdfab.jp.
DVDFab’s hosting providers are also ordered to stop servicing the company, as are other online services including Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
