    Well I'm not aware of all the legal ramifications or the digital rights that exist, but that's like saying you take a .MKV file and convert it to MPEG and now owe a fee to Microsoft because it is their file format you converted from. Isn't that what AC3 Filter does, convert the audio?
    While I don't want Sub to financially ruined, I'm sure an installer could check for the installation of AC3 Filter and if not exist, just launch a browser window to the site, and you manually download.

    I doubt AC3 Filter pays anything since their software is given out for free. I'm not saying it's legal since I don't really know.
