Skipping past DVD copyright notices

If a play a DVD, I have to wait out a copyright notice?I can't skip past it.

What are they afraid of? That a pirate will get off the hook in court by claiming that he skipped past the copyright notice too fast to read it?

Is disrespect for paying customers really a good strategy against piracy? If I could copy DVDs, the copies would be better than the originals, because I would not have to suffer through the copyright notices.

The enemy has a name: user operation prohibition (UOP)


Let it be...copy controlled

The Beatles: Let it be...naked doesn't play on my DVD player, even worse?it sounds like it is tearing the mechanics apart.

And it didn't play on my PC.

However, a CD-R with all the audio tracks is playing without a hitch.

So shat is this copy controlled business? Selling CDs that can only be copied, not played?

(To be fair, it did play on my old Sony, as well as on a cheap Dantax)
