That's referring to the "CSS" (Content Scrambling System) that is used on
DVDs. It's alleged purpose is to stop piracy, however it also enforces
region coding, non-skippable FBI warnings or commercials and many other
artificial restrictions.

Apparently CSS can be used for security, but I can't find any reference 
to it in the specifications. The only reference I can find is an
