How to remove protection from DVD on Mac

Remove DVD Protection

Why do we need to remove DVD protection?

Commercial DVDs usually use encryption called CSS (Content Scrambling System) to makes them difficult to be illegally played or be copied by using applications like Disk Utility.

But as we known, the protected discs are all very expensive. Even if we have bought the protected discs, we still have to spend expensive money when the disc is wrong or missing. Or we bought our favorite DVD when travel in other country but failed to play. So if we want to have to spend much money , we need to remove DVD protection and backup our favorite DVDs. It is illegal to break such encryption in the USA (due to the DMCA) and in Europe while it is permitted in some country.

To Mac OS, the DVD Ripper for Mac and DVD Copy for Mac are all helpful for us to remove the protection and successfully backup them.
