A GREAT IDEA FROM ONE OF OUR CUSTOMERS : So you want to prevent people making unauthorised copies of your DVD? EASY!!! Even if you are creating DVD content under 4.5GB why not BURN it direct to a Dual Layer DVD Disc. This costs a few pence more, but the result can be significant. the pontential content thief will try and copy your disc but find that he can't copy it to his single layer discs. He will become confused and probably give up. Most likely he won't have any dual layer discs or won't understand the reason for the failure. Simplezzz...
CD, DVD and Blu-Ray Copy protection really is the holy grail when it comes to protecting the reveneues and maximising your return on time invested in content creation. The reality is that in these tech savvy days most individuals who would choose to make illegal copies of your content can quite easily do so.
But there are still some techniques you can use to hinder unauthorised copying.
There are several software that are listed below that will offer a level of copy protection for your CD, DVD or Blu-Ray and most you can try before you buy.
But is there a FREE copy protection software or technique you could use? The answer is yes and no. Of course there is No FREE solution when even the premium professional solutions can be over come, but there are techniques you can use that will reduce the impact unauthorised copying will have on your revenues.
An interesting solution is digital watermarking. This works on both a technical level and a pychological level. A unique digital watermark can be applied to the data contained within any disc product you produce. For example you could add a hidden frame of video that contains the customers name. This hidden frame can include reference to individual customers (remember to keep a record of the hidden fram number!). This will allow you to track the source of all unauthorised copies that get made. Whilst his is not a copy protection technique, you may consider it copy prevention. By combining the digital water mark with on pack graphics informing the customer the product is protected by a digital watermark they may be prevented from asking copies on ethical grounds and by understanding that they are traceable.
