Arusoft today announced another change to the licensing structure of its Ultra HD Blu-ray ripping software, DeUHD. Two days ago the company introduced a Lite, Standard and Pro subscription. From today on it offers Lite subscribers to upgrade to Standard and existing Standard subscribers to upgrade to a Pro license.
Lite users pay €60 ($71) for 6 months, the license is automatically renewed. They can now upgrade to Standard and Pro for respectively €139 ($167) and €399 ($476). Existing Standard license owners can upgrade to Pro by paying €200 ($240). Both subscriptions are valid for a lifetime, but the difference between Standard and Pro is that the first has 2 disc per day rip limit and the latter a 6 disc per day rip limit.
The changes were possibly made after a lot of users were disappointed on our DeUHD Forum where existing subscribers felt that Arusoft took some of their benefits after introducing the new license structure two days ago.
It’s the fifth change by the company in its relative short life. The first version of DeUHD was released in October last year.
Using leaked AACS 2.0 Volume Keys (1,2,3,4), an Ultra HD Blu-ray ‘friendly’ drive , a non revoked AACS 1.0 certificate, and by abusing the now known AACS 2.0 loophole, it’s possible to rip Ultra HD Blu-ray movie for free when using MakeMKV. Existing license owners of AnyDVD and DVDFab also don’t have to pay extra for using the leaked keys.
Nevertheless, the number of movies that can be ripped using the leaked keys is much lower than the movies supported by DeUHD. So far the Russian company weekly adds many new movies to its list of supported movies in a steady pace.
