mcrmg it appears the CD is copyright protect to disallow any copying of it. Yes there are ways to get around it but it isn't entirely legal. Hecne the EE membership guidlines prohibit us from being able to give you this information. And no doing it through email is not an option either, sorry.

Crash you know better than that. Why are you posting things that may circumvent the copyright protection?

actually, I didn't look that closely at what exactly the program did.  That, and I don't see this any different from using something like CloneCD to copy a cd.  If you own it, you should be able to print it.

Crash that doesn't really matter and I agree with you. But this CD seems to be copyright protected and if so then there are some legal issues involved here. If this is in the US then the courts have upheld the rights of the vendor to do this and that those who are found to be violating the copyright protection can be prosecuted and/or sued.

Oh and there is a misconception in many cases one doesn't really own it rather one is granted a license to use it.

And the CD appears to be copyright protected. In otherwords they don't want people to copy anything off the CD and pass it around to other people. Contact the books publisher and ask them about why you can't print or copy the CD.

I know that Stephen King "published" a book online only and that file was a read only with no printing allowed, so that is how he controlled distribution. I imagine that CloneCD will allow you to make a back up image of this cd (which is entirely legal).
