Breakin' The Law, Breakin' The Law

The imortal words of Rob Halford, front-man of Judas Priest.

Copyright infringements are a delicate matter. As a professional, you should avoid infringements. After all, some day you're own product may find its way to the store shelves and you wouldn't want anyone to steal it without compensating you for it would you?

No, seriously; this post is aimed at identifying a couple products that I have heard (wink, wink) to be quite useful in duplicating production dvds.

Many commercial dvds have some form of copyright protection, restricting many duplication products from working. DVDFab HD Decripter 4 http://www.dvdfab.com isn't such a product. Fact of the matter is that it will work on most dvd's to date. I've heard many people use it to duplicate the dvd contents to their hard drive. The paid version can duplicate the contents to a dvdr, however being a cheapskate I've elected to duplicate it to the hd and used another product to burn it.

DvdShrink http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd_rippers/dvd_shrink.cfm works directly for older dvds, duplicating the contents dvd to dvd. It however is not up to date on many of the improved copyright techniques. So I've heard that duplicating a dvd to hd, and burning the harddrive contents to a dvdr works quite well.

I've heard that these two products combined let you duplicate most of the commercial dvds on the market.
