    i was at the video shop today and the guy there said the movie people have added a program into new dvds that emails a piracy network alerting them that you have coppied the dvd if you back it up on the computer. anyone heard of this?

    not really. but you never know. i figured my firewall would stop any programs from accessing the internet anyway.

    If it could be done, Sony would have already tried it. Besides that, AnyDVD stops any program from starting that is on the disc.

    As has already been said... bogus.

    Personally, my response would have been to gasp and throw a hand over my mouth with a horrified look on my face and then say, "Who would pirate DVDs?" I hate idiots like that.
