I don't believe it's entirely fail-proof, as someone could probably break through it fairly easily, but Encore does have a copy protection option. Look in the Encore help files under "copy protection" to see what exactly it entails.
Encore offers what everyone else offers. You flag for CSS, and your replicator stamps CSS encrypted DVDs. You flag it, they press it. Just remember, your replicator, not duplicator, is part of this effort. If you are burning DVD-Rs, you do not have this option. You need to be able to flag the project in Encore, then write to DLT, then have it stamped if CSS is what you want. Even then, there are lots of free applications on the web that will cut through CSS like a hot butter knife through butter. That doesn't mean everyone out there uses such applications, but it does mean, if teh user is somewhat savy, CSS won't stop them.
Use of the DVD Video logo is not automatic because you are replicating. A DVD-R is a DVD-ROM, and thus never going to have the Video logo. But replication doesn't imply you get the logo rights either. Either you must have the right, or as a pass-through, your replicator must.
Check with your replicator and ask if you can use the logo when using their replication services.
From the DVD FLLC
There are limited instances in which the Logo may be used by non-licensees. They may include:
1. Journalists and publishers who wish to use the Logo in connection with news stories/articles about DVD and/or the DVD Format;
2. Speakers and panelists who wish to use the Logo in their presentation materials at seminars; and
** Video productions, authoring studios, contents providers
I comunnicated with the DVD FLLC through email and Mr. Masahito Tanabe in a very detailed explanation gave me all the rules and I respect them all, and that is why I am going to use a local company CDT (South AfricA) as the replicator. They are listed on the DVD FLLC.
Am I correct in saying that if they replicate it would be legal to place the DVD-Video logo on my product? Please let me know if there is any other steps I need to complete as I want this product to be 100% legal.
