I am looking for a program that I can copy the videos that I have created onto a dvd & put a protection on the dvd so that no one can make copies of the videos.  Does anyone know of a program that will do this for me?

Hi beemmer,It's almost impossible to copy protect yur DVD, you can google software and pay a small price to over ride the copy protection in many cases.
Put the DVD in the DVD rom on your computer and that's it.
to make a backup of your personal DVD
 DVD Decrypter is one method to backup your DVD in it's true DVD form and burn direct to disc
 please google it as we are no longer allowed to post links to it for that very reason.
But it does not add any copy protection
to copy protect your new copied DVD
If the video can be viewed it can copied in some form.
Remember when the internet just started grow it was quite common to see the latest video online in pirated form and awful quality
 a web cam used in the picture theater unreal I know.
so addicted were those kids they would watch any quality.
There was Bluray but that also has been hacked.

Agreed - it's not possible to prevent copying, only to make it more difficult and adding that level of difficulty may cost so much as to outweigh any benefit.

Yes sorry I wish it were possible. Some copy portect ideas has come in the form of an imbedded media player on the disc and with out that being installed and regestered the disc will not play, but that gives you a once only legal copy  however again once it's playable it can be copied .
What I used suggest to folks who wanted to sell their music online was to give samples only.
If the listener wanted more they had to pay for it
At least you get some revenue back. Amazon uses this idea.
