Enormous effort has gone into creating technologies that protect CDs against piracy. CD Cracking Uncovered offers a comprehensive roundup describing these technologies, how they’re evaded, and new approaches that may be far harder to defeat. Whether you want to protect your creative content or your “fair use” rights, it’s fascinating reading.
Kris Kaspersky covers approaches based on non-standard disc formats, invalid track numbering, preventing playback on PC CD-ROM drives, deterring file-by-file copying; binding to storage media; and more. Along the way, he offers practical insights into CD file organization; CD-ROM driver interaction with hardware; and the use of Reed-Solomon error correction -- a crucial topic for those building CD anti-piracy systems, and one that’s rarely presented this clearly.
