Mark Pilgrim on DVD Copy Protection

A terrific little primer in a comment on Dave Shea’s weblog, after Shea posted a question about a “This DVD is copy protected and may be played only on licensed devices” warning on the back of the boxed set for Rome: The Complete First Season.

Pilgrim’s “HOWTO Back Up Your DVD Movies” has saved me, as the father of an almost-three-year-old who insists on putting his own discs into the DVD player, quite a bit of money.
