Makes sure you put your company logo/name/website on the end of the dvd, even if it's just discretely, after the credits, so that whoever see's the copied dvd knows who the original producer was.
If you only put those details on the cover then there's loads of potential clients who won't get to hear/see about you.

You can burn the Menu page but the links will be dead.

I usually fill them in on that information PRIOR to them asking. I then tell them that additional copies cost "X" IF they are ordered the day we sign the contract. If they order more copes AFTER the fact (once they realize they can't copy them) they cost TWICE as much to order.

I have had people order as many as 6 DVD's from me.
Hi there,

What program you using to build your dvd's to make the links useless?

I quite like that idea lol.

Quite a while ago I read a post at this site where the user, whose name escapes me at the moment, said that if Hollywood studios with their million dollar budgets cannot create a DVD that can circumvent a $30 piece of DVD decryption software, then we have no chance.

I like the idea of protecting DVDs from being copied but I would be more worried about increased incompatibility with the clients players more than I would about the clients burning their own copies.

I tell them they can if they want, but then I show them samples of the DVDs I deliver and an easy-to-understand pricelist with my cost per DVD ($10 each.)

Most of them understand my deliverable is worth at least $10 more than a Sharpie copy, but some guys fancy themselves a disk duplication expert and want to do it themselves.

I've had wedding clients order as many as 15 copies.

I don't think you can make a stink about "copyright" when most of us are flagrantly violating copyright with the music we're using.
