DVD-Cops copy-protection recognizes an original DVD-ROM and rejects copies: those produced on a DVD-R writer, as well as those produced by "professional pirates" on glass masters. The protection doesn't require special DVD-ROM's and any DVD factory can produce protected discs.
DVD-cops is based on the well-known and very reliable CD-Cops technology, and DVD-Cops is one of the most secure DVD copy-protection systems in the world. The software that checks the disk is protected by Link's Code Security, which has been in use since 1984 and is known throughout the world as being virtually unbreakable.
DVD-Cops is a shell protection which is added to the softwares main executable. This is the only change necessary. Your usual production procedure remains the same. The protection measures Minute differences to establish the DVD-ROM’s fingerprint, which ensures that copies are rejected.
