CPRM, shorthand of Content Protection for Recordable Media, may be unfamiliar to you at first mention, but actually you may know it very well in practical cases:
1. I have a disc from Japan that I really want to be able to view. It was burned on a DVD apparently from a Sharp DVD Recorder. However, when I try to play it in VLC or any other program it is just green and pixellated. - Chopmeister
2. I cannot copy the .VRO file from the disc to computer, when I try, I get a message 'Cannot copy VR_MOVIE: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that file is not currently in use.' - Mattse
