As many of you know, well at least some of you know that AnyDVD has closed its doors, or at least that's what they claim. But then they Resurface as RedFox (I preferred Slysoft), and did a song and dance about how they were forced shut, and then they reasserted their new albeit connected to the past credentials. To many of us it was a believable tale, because they've been there before, and it's quite possible they've found themselves there again. But here's where the tale gets broken! AnyDVD resurfaces with the new moniker of RedFox, with the SlyFox logo now wearing a mask which seems increasingly appropriate as the Phoenix rises from its ashes. I immediately went to download the latest update, while wondering if my old license would still work, and it did. Even though I don't use AnyDVD much anymore, I was relieved because I felt I had encountered an old lost friend. All seemed well until the 8.x.x.x updates when I received the message that my license was no longer valid, and I would have to purchase a new lifetime license. Apparently the word lifetime has different meanings depending on who's interpreting it. What could possibly have SlyRedFox, honoring the original agreement for a few updates, and then reneging on it with the arrival of versions 8? If they needed money then they could've asked for it and many of us would've donated to them just as we did to DVD Rebuilder. But they chose instead to use a cover story about how some of the original members needed a job, and as a result decided to keep things going. If the current owners are new then those who established it are gone, and AnyDVD's reputation along with it. If they are in fact the original developers then they've reneged on the original promised licenses, and hoped to escape it by claiming to be newly formed. I have the latest update that still carries my license, and I will use it as long as it proves useful, but unless the "sly redfox" group levels with it's supporters, then I'm done. So does anyone else have an opinion on this or do we just go along with their charade as though nothing's changed?
