SlySoft, the company behind Blu-ray ripping software AnyDVD, has shut down its website and ceased sales of its products.

According to a report by TorrentFreak, the move comes after “Hollywood studios and technology partners asked the U.S. Government to intervene”.

“Warner Bros, Disney, Microsoft, and Intel reminded the U.S. Government about the unauthorized activities of SlySoft,” stated the report.

SlySoft – whose AnyDVD was popular among those looking to circumvent copyright protection – closed its website and had its domain’s main name servers removed, stated TorrentFreak.
