Why the information has been taken down from the ezydvd website can be found in the newsgroup. It seems that the reason to why the product have been taken out is that they did not have accurate stock numbers for a product that will be in demand, and could have lead to customer disappointment if not managed correctly. (Thanks goes to Lukas Mariman for posting the information)

One imporatant thing to remember is that there is no official word from Warner if any of this is true, people have reported that ezydvd should be considered trustworthy.
