    Do many adult studios use Macrovision copyright protection on their DVDs?

    I believe the list includes Metro, Odyssey, and Wicked. I also read that Anabolic/Diabolic does, although I have not confirmed this.

    If adult studios do copy protect their DVDs it will make it much harder to create personal compilations ... and I'm sure nearly porno fan has done this often.

    You still can get around this though. Either by algorithms or some long method using powerful video capture like ADS Instant DVD 2.0 - where there's a will, there's a way ;)
     
  4. MACRO-VISION ADULT DVDS AND WHO DOES IT

    YES, LOTS OF COMPANY'S ARE THINKING OF ADDING IT, BUT ONLY THE BIG GUYS DO, IT'S COSTLY TO ADD MACRO-VISION TO A DVD. AND IF YOUR TALKING ABOUT CLASSIC DVD'S . THE ONLY COMPANY THAT I KNOW OF WAS VIDEO-X-PIX AND THEY ONLY DID TWO, THE COST IS TO HIGH AND WITH THE OLDER COMPANY'S JUST TRYING TO GET THE TITLES OUT ON DVD, THE COST IS TO HIGH IN THE LONG RUN.

    With all these protections I bet it would be difficult for students to make snippets from video for like educational stuff such as media/film, presentations etc. rather silly really

    Any studio that wastes thier money on this is foolish.
    A copy protection scheme is only good until 1 person breaks it.
    As major million dollar films are cracked daily, the idea a much smaller budget porn company can hope to protect thier assets is laughable.

    This is very ancient discussion but the issue is still alive. The move to Blu-Ray certainly has not slowed down copy protection. Blu-ray copy protection is much tougher than traditional DVDs. It's hard to even play one on your laptop let alone copy it. I also think trying to capture streaming video -- which is replacing physical discs -- is harder to copy than traditional DVDs. Now I read that 4k content will have copy protection as well, and even more of a pain for users.

    Just tonight I read where in the UK it is now illegal (again) to rip CDs and DVDs for personal use. Amazing "format shifting" is still an issue in 2015. The article acknowledges the rule cannot really be enforced.
