DVDXCopy Platinum Sales Information
Overview - Is DVD X Copy Platinum legal?
We are not 321 Studios but an authorized software reseller and we still have a
number of copies of the original DVD burner software that they can
no longer sell which are still available for sale. This is the original DVD copy
software tool with the DVD ripper. You do not need any other software to make
DVD X Copy Platinum work as it was originally developed and distributed.
As of February 27th, 2004, 321 Studios has stopped selling
DVDXCopy Platinum and
DVDXCopy Xpress and the company has said it has sold a
million copies of DVD Copy Plus and DVD X Copy software nationwide, and that it
likely would lose hundreds of thousands of dollars destroying the versions with
the descrambling tool built in - on top of the millions already spent on legal
However the great news is that working with an International software
distributor, DVDXCopy Platinum and
DVDXCopy Xpress are now available for
Q. What is RF?
As a result of 321
Studios complying with a recent court order, they started selling Ripper-Free
products (RF) that does not contain a DVD ripper which previously allowed you to
read a CSS encrypted movie. If you attempt to read a CSS encrypted movie, you
will receive a message stating that you cannot read a CSS encrypted movie.
The Ripper-Free versions contain browse functionality instead. The START
button in DVDXCopy Xpress and in DVDXCopy Platinum Simple Mode is activated only
when a disc is in the drive. If a disc is not in the drive, this button displays
as a BROWSE button to allow you to browse your hard drive for an unencrypted
video file you wish to back up on a DVD.
The latest news is that despite 321 Studios’ best efforts to remain in
business, injunctions entered against 321 Studios by three US Federal courts
earlier this year has resulted in 321 Studios no longer being able to continue
operating the business.
Q. Is the
software we are selling on this website illegal because it has the ripper in it?
A: No. The ruling was only that 321 Studios could no longer distribute
it. You may still find some on the shelves of retail stores in the USA. But it
is going fast and the re-supply by 321 Studios of the software containing the
ripper has been stopped by the US courts. 321 Studios can no longer sell or
distribute it, but they can and will still support it. They are now selling a
ripper free version.
Q: Did the Judge rule that I can’t backup a CSS Protected DVD movie?
A: No. The judge stated: “The downstream uses of the software by the
customers of 321, whether legal or illegal, are not relevant to determining
whether 321 itself is violating the statute” (the DMCA). This means that while
321 Studios is not presently permitted to manufacture, distribute or even
provide a link to DVD ripper software, in any country where you have a lawful
source of DVD ripper software, you may be able to download, install and use it
for purposes allowed by the laws of your country.
