Is Daniusoft safe

by radtech35 / June 29, 2008 12:27 AM PDT

I saw that Daniusoft was recommended by a few people to convert prtoected music files. Is this software safe to download. Does anyone know if it contains spyware or malware, etc. Thanks.

Safe? Yes. Legal? Can be iffy...

Their software lineup is indeed free of malware, but note that it may be illegal in some countries. Here in the US the general rule is that DRM-stripping software is illegal, but it is permissible to use programs which automate the process of recording songs being played over your sound card, provided you actually own the music to begin with. (It's not subscription music, borrowed from a friend, etc.) You must determine if it's legal for your usage in your country/region.

yep, I have the music legally

Thank you for your response. I know it is controversial to strip drm music. I DO own the music and bought it legally, but as is the case with so many music sights, you can't play them on your ipod and some(like spiralfrog) you can't even burn a CD with the music you just downloaded! I am looking to convert them so I can play them on my ipod. I don't see the point in buying another mp3 player if I can convert them. Thanks again.
