    Protection Info
    ProtectDVD is a unique copy protection system for Publishers that use DVD media. A unique fingerprint applied to the DVDs during the manufacturing process enables the ProtectDVD software components to differentiate original from copied DVDs.

    ProtectDVD tries to secure against:
    • Duplicate the original DVD - the copy will not work and the software will ask for the original DVD. No DVD burner/software combination is physically able to write the mass manufactured unique fingerprint.
    • Copy the DVD to the hard disk - the program will not work if the original DVD was not at least once in the drive.
    • Emulate the original DVD - the protected program will request the original DVD if run from an emulated drive.
    • Cracking and distributing cracked versions - ProtectDVD uses highly sophisticated anti-cracking technology that does not only prevent generic cracks but also makes individual cracks extremely hard. In fact, no ProtectDVD version was ever broken...
    • Professional piracy through mass replication is much harder (* although with good equipment possible).
    • Algorithm theft is almost impossible since the programs will be encrypted and debugging is securely disabled.

    Their statement that "no ProtectDVD version was ever broken", is a bit outdated as at least one PC Game (Anstoss 2007) was cracked in September 2006.

    From the users perspective:

    • Very fast protection detection and 100% compatibility - the fingerprint check is only a matter of seconds. Since ProtectDVD is within the specifications of the DVD-ROM spec, no additional hardware compatibility issues are introduced.
    • 100% transparent check - the user is not required to enter an individual code.

    Development advantages:

    • Wrapping tools can be controlled by command line for automated protection on build systems.
    • New individual/machine limited unlock keys can be created for developer and beta machines to be able to test the FINAL master without the need for pre-production DVDs.

    ProtectDVD blacklists certain applications, like DAEMON Tools & Alcohol 120%, when they are available.
