    Where would this software be? On the "others"'s PCs? On the CDs themselves?

    If someone can invent a copy protection system, it's a good bet that it can be cracked in hours or days.

    Best bet is to prevent the "others" from actually getting your CDs!

    I would agree with John on this one. There are too many ways around copy protection on a CD. If it's data, you could try password protecting it in some way, but the method for doing so would depend on the end use of said data.

    Hi sweetman

    Are you giving the CDs to others to use, but not to copy, or are they being taken without your permission and copied? Are they music or data CDs?
    If they are data CDs being taken without permission, you could try encoding the data so that it would be jibberish when copied. You can search the web for freeware and shareware encoding software.

    Have a Great day!!!
