Is Crank a Sony disc?

Can anyone tell me, please :bowdown: , if Crank is a Sony disc in Region 1? I bought it in Portugal (Region 2) and made a copy only with Shrink :D (the disc has only CSS encryption). I read in other threads than some folks had trouble :doh: with this movie. So, I would like to know if some movies like this one have different copy protections in other countries.
Thanks in advance!:)

Ok, thanks again! As I suspected before, the same movies in other countries sometimes have different copy protections.:agree:
