I'm not entirely sure what the end result you are going for is, but keep in
mind that any data you can write can be copied. DVDs can be copied (legal
issues aside, it is physically possible). Don't go with DVDs _just_ because
you hear they are "protected." As a rule, if it can be read, it can be
copied. It is that simple. You can even buy T-Shirts with the DVD
decryption code written on them (if you want to read about the whole
"episode" where the encryption was broken, search for DeCSS or browse around
at give you plenty). There are cheaper and more
accessible means of distributing the same thing, and none are any more safe
than the others (IMO).
