"This disk is copy protected" logo

I tired searching the forums and Google (for “logo” and “copy protection logo”) but couldn’t find any info about this little image:

I notice this image on more and more DVDs (especially those by Fox or WB). The text says either “This DVD is copy protected” or “These disks are copy protected.” What does it mean? Well, I understand that the DVD is copy protected… But does this image refer to a particular type of DVD copy protection, or does it refer to copy protection in general?

Try ripping the disc and see what happens…

Rip the movie with what software? I understand that (for example) Nero Recode cannot rip the disk since it is protected, but DVD Decrypter doesn’t seem to have any problems.

My main question is, “But does this image refer to a particular type of DVD copy protection, or does it refer to copy protection in general?” :slight_smile:

It’s some pissant little mini-structure-protection that is easily defeated by virtually every program out there. I forget its name. Ignore it. :wink:
