BTW: How does Goldwave play these files or stand against the suits
from audible ? This tool has been reported multiple time to be able to
convert audible-files.
My questions of course assume they to it illegally. The other
possibility is that they payed for a license playing these files. But
I don't think so, as selling a license to a converter would fail the
whole system.
