Not sure where you are going fruitbat but dont forget that there are loads of legitimate uses to burning .info files. Anyone that produces their own home videos should know this. Also it is a great way to produce a best of a series of episodes rather than lug the entire box set you can have just the one CD. Obviously this requires you play it legal. Not our job to play net nannies.

DVD shrink I don't have a problem with, de-cryptor however is definately about breaking copywrite protection.
Shrink will work with any .bup .ifo files not containing protection.
"some software that will burn files from a ripped DVD"
I have to disagree with you there. Very easy to duplicate most copy-protected DVDs in DVD Shrink.
Perhaps the T's and C's of the forum have to be revisited, but there are cases that need to be fully defined.
Is copying copywright protected DVDs or CDs (or any other material) within or outside the law if it is for one's self use? How is 'self use' defined? How can De-Cryptor be perceived as being 'definately about breaking copywrite protection'?
It's almost like saying that hammers should be banned for public use because they can be used to smash the windows of jewellery shops, and that (in turn) would be an implicit indictment on the purchaser of the hammer, purely on the basis of the purchase.
Sorry to be such a p in the a Fruit Bat /\0/\, but I just get so wound up by this sort of finger pointing. On that basis, I fully agree with Astec123.
