Slysoft was forced out of business in February. They're the folks that sold "AnyDVD" and "AnyDVD HD" all these years that allowed us to defeat region codes and encryption.
They were based in Antigua, and someone managed to get them fined $11,000 by the government.
They aren't dead. They've reformed, in Belize, under the name Redfox. And they're still selling the products from before.
Maybe the fact that my unlocked phone still doesn't permit me root access to the OS. Yeah, that pisses me off about as much as region codes.

Of course, the easiest way to do that is "don't include the Japanese audio track at all". And that was done a few times. Naturally not my favored solution!
The other alternative, and one that was also tried a few times, was to put hard subtitles in the video. Of course this didn't work for anything that you dubbed, and it was muy unpopular here on top of that...
That said, I authored a whole lot of unencrypted discs back in the day. The Japanese would go nuts if you didn't make the disc R1, but they didn't care if you used DSS on it...
