I had a question about any of your cd/dvd burning software.

Does any of your software have a feature that will enable myself to burn a copyrighted version of the cd/dvd. Therefore, making the cd/dvd I burned unable to be duplicated?

Please let me know. Thanks.

Jose,
GEAR PRO Mastering Edition supports the creation of DVD masters that are flagged for CSS encryption. The actual encryption is only done by a DVD replicator that is licensed to master and replicate CSS protected DVDs.

There are several CD anti-piracy products available, including SafeDisc from Macrovision. Like CSS, these technologies are only available for replicated discs, not recordable discs. You would need to contact Macrovision, or a licensed replicator who could give you all of the information that you need.

Other than these technologies, there is no way to make a burned CD or DVD playable (readable), yet uncopyable.

Actually, there is apparently a way this can be done - at least, according to my replication brokers.
I am waiting for a sample as I type this.
I will also post back when I have seen it with my own two eyes.
The company in question is DRA Media - http://www.dra-media.com/
ask for Jane Rubin, and she will give you the info needed.

There is also a process called Max Optical, that is supposed to prevent all attempts to copy, as it produces a file that cannot be read.
Sadly, when I was sent the sample CD I could not open a single file on it.
Max Optical do not answer their emails either, so this is almost certainly best avoided.
