That would make sense.  At least as far as I understand it, and would seem 
like that would be more important to them than keeping silent to avoid 
greater public awareness of the existence of such work-arounds.

I don't have a good grasp of any of the details about how such things 
work, nor even of who the players actually are.  And information seems to 
be sparse.
seems to state that it was the doing of AACS-LA,
but how reliable are they?

But SlySoft did shut down, claiming "legal pressure"
RedFox, who surfaced as the new distributor, is presumably mostly the same 
people, resurfacing as a "new" company "to continue the fight".
'course some conspiracy theorists speculate that that was just to be able 
to clear out the "lifetime" licenses.
Apparently the more recent versions will not work without an internet link 
to the distributor's servers.
