    can you see it? [​IMG]
    "do not make illegal copies of this disc"
    it made me think when i wanted to put it in my KREON drive, for about 2 secs, now it's ripping [​IMG]
    it's very effective [​IMG]

    I can see the hackers needing a couple of months to bypass this protection.

    Oh shi-

    We're fucked. I hope Nintendo doesn't start using that type of protection too...



    @sabanito: You said you still tried to copy it. What happened?

    That's not funny!

    Like said, it's been for years on all MS discs (and others)
    Look at your Windows XP disc (if you have an original).
