Copy Prevention

A system for preventing the unauthorized reproduction of copyrighted media like movies or music. The DVD format includes both digital and analog forms of copy protection. You will probably not be able to copy DVDs with your VCR. (In fact, because the copy protection system is triggered by a circuit found in most VCRs, simply playing a DVD and running the signal through your VCR will often result in a distorted picture. You should bypass the VCR altogether and connect your DVD player directly to your TV.)
Copy prevention is often hotly debated, and is sometimes thought to infringe on customers' property rights: for example, the right to make a backup copy of a videotape they have purchased, or to install and use computer software on multiple computers.
