cd copy protection

  signalong 15:53 05 Oct 2007

I work for a small charity which produces signing resources for people with communication difficulties. we would like to make some of our resourses available on cd. in order to protect the resource, most of our revenue is derived from selling manuals of these resourses, we need to protect the resource and make it readable only, that is not downloadable from the cd. Is there any way we can do this.

The biggest manufacturers of CDs and DVDs aren't able to do this successfully. You or I have no chance.

Not the same thing, I'm afraid.

Any optical disk is capable of being copied by some means - foul or fair.

So how can you fairly copy a READ ONLY dics then,
as soon as you attempt to copy the disc you are surely breaking rules, i can understand what your saying but in the circles that these discs are going to run in i am sure they would be safe.
Of course scanning the manuals would have the same effect so €dstowe a puzzler indeed...

'So how can you fairly copy a READ ONLY disc then' record it from the soundcard...this is why there is no such thing as copy protection. You have to record it as it plays but it works.

...missed off....... and for manuals there are plenty of screen capture programmes available that can paste the text and format it.
