I even want to be more honest. Of course we have completely opened MKBv4, otherwise I would not be able to remotely crack every disc I receive an AnyDVD_Info file.

2.) Last time, we were the first releasing an AnyDVD HD beta which fully decrypted MKBv3, even weeks before the first disc (Matrix HD DVD) was officially released. A couple of days later, the processing key was published in a blog, then the folks at Doom9 picked it up. May be a coincidence, but honestly, AnyDVD is much easier to attack than the commercial player software, so I suspect the key was taken out of the AnyDVD HD beta.
I wouldn't mind so much if freeware is using our research, but other commercial programs like DVDFab picks up our research from the freeware tools.
You must understand, that our research costs a lot of time and money - funded by customers who have or will buy an AnyDVD HD license -, and we don't want other commercial software publishers to benefit from our work.
In other words - this time, Fengtao must do the work on his own, or wait until the freeware tools provide him with the required information.
