    Can you give more details?
    As far as copy protection goes, if it can be read, it can be copied.

    Using various, likely expensive, anti-copying mesures that doesn't work.

    This is basically right. You can't apply any kind of copy protection without getting replicated disks. That usually means a 1000 piece minimum order, at about $1 a disk (including packaging). You also need a DLT drive to do the mastering. If you do that, you can encode your disk with CSS and/or Macrovision, both intended to prevent copying. However, CSS and Macrovision are both trivial to circumvent, and therefore almost useless.
