? on dvd encryption



My brother bought a basketball instruction dvd today and the disc warning label says something like:

“WARNING: disc is copy protected, if copied, disc will deem unusable”

So, is there such a built in mechanism on a commercial dvd that can destroy your purchased dvd if you attempt to copy it?

I think it’s just a fake warning trying to scare people right?

I mean, if i have a read-only dvd player how can it write the “destroy” code back to the dvd?


The disk will not self destruct. Not even if you accept the mission. :slight_smile:



thanks man, that’s what i thought
