Slysoft is back under a slightly different name operating out of a different country:

I believe they will honor any unexpired update subscriptions you might have.

DVDFab had gone through a similar process a couple of years ago. But, they have survived.

There is also MakeMKV, which the lawyers and courts have not been able to get to, yet at least.

One thing I liked about Slysoft was that it could play a DRMed BD video in real time, unlike the others. You did not have to first create a ripped file for playback. With MakeMKV, that rip takes maybe 30 minutes. I have not played with DVDFab. So, Slysoft was great for playing Netflix rentals immediately via my PC BD drive without the wait for ripping to a file on the hard drive. I do not believe in saving movie rips. Mostly, I will never watch movies again in my lifetime, and they become just baggage on my NAS. I will just re-rent them in the unlikely event I wish to ever see them again. Music is an entirely different story, of course.

But, the real question in this international chess game is who can best stay ahead of the lawyers for the media companies. Stay tuned.

Thx for the link but unless I'm not understanding what they said, SlySoft AnyDVD owners will be out of luck after the specified date.

Important information for SlySoft license owners!
SlySoft license keys for AnyDVD (HD) will only work up to version 7.6.9.1. The RedFox OPD (Online Protection Database) for this version will be available until Saturday, April 30, 2016, afterwards AnyDVD HD may no longer be able to decrypt discs.

SlySoft licenses of other products are not affected and will continue to work normally.

The only thing you need is a program called makemkv. It's freeware while it stays in beta, but it's been in beta for years and gets monthly updates and works flawlessly. Don't let the fact that it's in "beta" fool you - this is a stable, reliable program. It easily allows you in a few clicks to losslessly remux whatever files on the disc you want to mkv with your choice of audio files and subtitles, and for 3D discs, you can select whether you want it remuxed in 3D (select avc and mvc options) or just 2D (deselect the mvc option). It takes just seconds to select what you want.
It also allows ripping of 4K/HDR movies as well. MakeMKV is a great piece of software with good support.
