Copy Protection

I made home travel movies that I gave the final copy to several friends/relatives who asked for them. How could I prevent them from making copies of my produced DVD? Would there be software available for copy protecting the DVD disk? Any advise would be very much appreciated. Thanks, HTan

Frankly, look at DVDSHRINK which explains that even if you managed to encrypt such, there is this tool...

Thanks Bob. Yes, I know because I also have 1ClickDVDCopy that with a DVD-Decrypter could copy commercial DVD movies. However, if I could find a software that could protect a home DVD movie being copied by people/friends, who are not that computer savvy, perhaps it still would be worthwhile. In this case, if it is too much trouble they may not want to copy it. htan

Thanks, Bob for the info. You are right, it appears to be expensive and probably not worth doing it.
