i lent out a film to someone in the office,and
thay copyed it,witch anoyed the hell out of me.
anyway the dvd was reg0 and had no copy-protctshon on it ,is there something i can download witch would protect against copying
.im not shore what there using to copy, i dont thinks is someing powerfull like dvdxcopy i think its somthing basic .
i just need protecting from basic copy programs not heavy programs like dvd-x-copy

the only way is not to lend them out.this was asked recently and i am sure the answer was "no"

If anyone had an effective copy protection system, they would make a fortune and every CD and DVD manufacturer would use it. As they don't you can assume it doesn't exist.

If it was an original (factory pressed) DVD how would you apply any copy protection to it?

As far as i'm aware, region o is "region free" and so therefore was a copied film in the first place.

The fact that you say it has no copy protection kinda confirms that.

Home movie?

my guess is JonnyTub its more likely a home DVD and not one bought from the Region 0 does confirm this...

Some music DVDs are Region 0

Beatles Anthology - click here

Beatles Magical Mystery Tour - click here

to pick two....

Maybe so, but i bet they're copyrighted.

don't dispute that, but non-copyrighted dvd?
